TripAdvisor Reviews Amir Palace Hotel Tunisia
Travel Blogs from Tunisia
It was amazing to think that, if I would've come to Tunisia before 2011, I wouldn't have seen any women wearing head-scarves. I would've seen my girlfriend's hair, without even having to sneak into her house at night.
-----But, it was true. My sister Semia told me that, during the dictatorship of Ben Ali, it had been illegal for women to wear head-scarves in public. Following the 2011 revolution, women became "free" to cover their hair. It was ironic, ...
Kerouan may have been Islam's fourth holiest city.
-----But, small town communities were usually more conservative and traditional than big cities. The small town of Sminja, Tunisia was the most conservative community I'd ever lived in. I sometimes went weeks without seeing a woman's hair.
-----Sminja was also one of the warmest communities I'd ever lived in. Walking around, I passed small children who held hands and greeted ...
One day during the week of Semia's wedding celebrations, I was chasing a neighborhood kid around and I hit my head on a door. A small but deep cut appeared above my eye. I put a piece of tissue on the cut, and returned to dancing.
-----Hours passed. But, my cut continued to bleed slowly. I worried I was going to have to pay for a night taxi to the nearest town, to get stitches.
-----Semia's family suggested I use "qahwa" (coffee) to stop the bleeding. ...
I returned to northern Tunisia, and my house in the small town of Sminja.
-----The month of March arrived. It was full of rain. Mud. Cold winds that forced me to wear my kashabiya robe in the daytime. Occasional patches of hot sun that tricked me into wearing small amounts of clothes, and which eventually made me sick.
-----Every night, I walked through muddy olive orchards and went to my friend Monsoor Dreedy's house to have dinner. ...
Not the best sleep. The room was rather cool but the blanket was warm enough. Something was intermittently bashing some distance away, like shutters being blasted shut by the wind every once in awhile.
Up for a shower and down to Cora's room for her wake up call. She actually opened the door and looked like death warmed over. Computer down to reception for some wifi and surfing; not much news of note save for the cross your fingers' stuff about the rain ...
