... be given to Noubi re issues; the idea is sound but will see if anybody actually does it.
We were off at noon. Noubi gave us the drill about three options today and two days away. Today was a caleche or camel ride, going through Berber villages and seeing a sunset. The Gabes oasis is seven square kilometres and the country's only maritime oasis. It is known for its henna and pomegranate production.
At Gabes at 1250 and walked through the spice market. Spices are ...
... ghorfas were pretty interesting, however, the heat was killing me. I wandered around for far less time than I would have liked, before I waved the white flag and got back into the car and asked for the AC full blast. (I usually prefer the windows to be open in lieu of AC, but this was just oven hot and it called for extreme measures.)
I cooled off just in time to arrive in the town of Medenine. Medenine was a bustling little town with a myriad of fruit stands and ...
... amp; we had to remove our shoes before entering. Some old men were reading from the Torah & discussing things when we were there. Next door is a guest house for all the pilgrims. From there we went to see a local potter making pots etc as this is an important local industry.
In the afternoon we visited Zarsis, surely one of the scruffiest places we have seen so far with not a lot to recommend it to us apart from a small ...

... back to England, and we head to Libya tomorrow. No alcohol is allowed in Libya, so will be enjoying some sundowners on the beach tonight to finish off whatever we have left.
The Trip Odometer has reached 3000 Km without much fuss. Let hope it continues, but I'm sure with Libya, Egypt and Sudan to come, there are some interesting times ahead, and many more hours of sitting at a border post.

Historical Traveler Reviews Alkantara Thalassa Djerba
I liked the Alkantara. We (family of four with two boys 8 and 10) stayed for two weeks mid-end July. The staff don't speak much English it's true, but they are extremely friendly and if you can speak some French or German, it's fine.
Before going on holiday to this hotel I had read a lot of reviews. Some were negative and some were possitive. Overall I must sat this was one of the best holidays ive had in a long time.
Me, the wife and two kids arrived at 5am on the early hours of a Sunday morning. The hotel is 35 minutes drive from the Lovely Djerba airport. Even at that time the check in and the staff were very good. I was worried after reading reviews concerning the "algie" issue with the sea, let me clear this up, this is not algie, or sewage but a natural dilema facing the hotel, it is seaweed, however, it covers all of about three feet from the beach head into the water.
just had a glorious week at this beautiful hotel, my sister and I wanted a quiet break and thats exactly what we got. Djerba is a relatively new resort for the English but that wasn't a problem the locals were so friendly and loved the English, they really like to speak to you as it improves their Englsh. The hotel was fabulous we were there very early in the season (Easter) so it was probably quieter than in the summer but this didn't spoil anything. Djerba is an island south of the main Tunisian resorts with its own airport, which is large and clean.
Great to get away from it all
fantastic hotel set in a quite location. perfect for getting away from it all. hotel was very clean and airy. rooms are large and comfortable with much needed air con.
fabulous pool with pleanty of sun loungers and parasols. pleanty of food choice for breakfast & evening meal. friendly staff although English is not spoken too well. thalassatherepy centre is very good with loads on offer from massage to manicures.
The feedback on our stay in this hotel (30th october- 5th november 2005)is mixed. There are pros and cons.
