Distance Travelled: 12,300km
Frame of Mind: Disheartened

Oh to cut a long story short I had a mare.  My chain broke again.  The front sprocket has two snapped teeth and the rear is bent, as is my rear wheel.  Feel like a bit of a boo.  So close to home too.  Limped from Matmata to Gabes, got a new chain (a sticking plaster to cover a stabwound) and then made it to Kairouan, 200km from Tunis.  Perhaps will get the parts in Tunis but might just hop on a ferry and get back to Europe.  I want to be home now.  

I did see chilli-ville.  Just outside Kairouan.  More chillis than a penguin popsicle party.  Literally covering all the houses of just this one town,  Enough to make the ol' ring burn just thinking about it.

I've only been in Tunisia three days and I like it but I'm going to get on a boat.  There's one leaving for an unpronounceable Italian place on Saturday (tomorrow) or one on Sunday to Genoa.  I think this is the one I'll get.  Then I'll have a chance to see a little of the capital and Carthage too perhaps.

Tomorrow is another day Clark....
