We had a great day out thanks to the guidance of our Tunisian cab driver come guide, Nourah. The hotel recommended him as their best English speaking guide.

As today is my last day in Tunis, I decided to spend it just kind of bumming around taking photos and buying souvenirs (incidentally, I have a terrible scarf problem and ended up with four). I went first to the medina, the old city of Tunis. It's chaotic and crowded and there are a hundred different smells and sounds to attract your attention.
