As we are nearing the last of the trip, I can't help but to feel a bit relaxed as we move through to the next city. I'm seriously getting tired of Ali's rambles though, and Waymon is getting tired of the food we've been provided. There are no McDonalds or In-N-Outs, and not even a gas station to pee at.

Our first stop was the Punic Sanctuary, a necropolis. The Romans suggested the Carthaginians engaged in child sacrifice. More likely is any such practices involved stillborns or babies born with birth defects [such an approach would be similar to Sparta]. Noubi pointed out the emblem of Baal Hammon, the god of the moon. The tanit symbol represented the god ...
