nothing around here except beach - no shops or restaurants. everyone spoke french so difficult to speak at reception, food basic. there were many facilities including disco, horses, camels, crazy golf, swimming pool and flumes/tobaggon but many were closed due to so few people in the hotel.

I am very happy I was able to get out of the country before all of this trouble ...
... and the place of the country in the Arab world. Last year, I spent amy summer in Damascus and was frustrated at the difference between the classroom Arabic and the language of the street. Tunis is beyond frustration. People seem more comfortable with French than with formal Arabic and the dialect is near incomprehensible.
