Trip around ...
Day 9 & 10
The following morning we headed towards Djerba, a tourist island near the Libyan border. The roads were good, and after a short ferry trip costing only 0.800 TD (Less than R5) for all of us plus Corrie, we arrive on the island around midday. We found a little place on the beach were a room for 4 was only 4TD more than camping, so we stayed there for two days, within 20m of the sea. ...

Winding lanes are fringed with craft and antique stores and traders are willing to haggle over goods such as ceramics, jewellery and spices. Many of the locals wore traditional dress which seemed similar to Mayan costumes from Guatemala!
