This is part of the dining room as we were about to leave after breakfast and continue our Roman Ruins Tour.
This is the gate between "old" and "new" Tunis. On this side is the Medina and on the other side is the French styled section of boulevards, Parisian cafes and modern buildings.
We visited Sidi Bou Said which is close to Tunis and is a picturesque village on a hilltop overlooking the Mediterranean. As we walked down from a coffee break at a cafe on the hill we passed a funeral procession going uphill to the cemetery at the top. It was on foot because of the steep and narrow road and about a hundred men took turns running to the front and shouldering the coffin. I did not take a pic of that but this is the road they climbed.
We sat in the cafe here and had coffees. Others were smoking water-pipes and although we were offered the opportunity to do so, I chose not to. The views were amazing and the bill for two coffees for us and a juice for our guide in this favourite tourist spot was only 7.80Dt or 3.90GBP.
The next post will be about the Roman mosaics. I need to sort out where we went and what photos are what before I can describe the ruins.
