( KAIROUAN, TUNISIA; )
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.

We reached the WHS portion of Carthage by 1115. ...
... The Kasbah where we are staying in Kairouan is not that well lit and has tiny little windows. I somehow managed to put my shirt on inside out and had wandered all over the place that morning looking like a doofus. C'et la vie. I would change it when we stopped for lunch.
We took a short 20 minute drive along the waterfront to the marina where I was going to have lunch. The French restaurant turned out to be quite nice, complete with waiters in tuxes who unfortunately turned out ...
