My wife, Siro and I have traveled to Tunis, Tunisia for a conference at the African Development Bank as well as training sessions conducted at various regional universities, including El-Minar University. We had one day off to explore Tunis at the very beginning and explore we did. We visited the haunts of Tunis along with Carthage, that ancient city of Hannibal.
Tunis is incredible on a variety of levels, including the amount of tobacco that is inhaled. In elevators, bathrooms, restaurants, hallways. I am guessing they smoke when they sleep. Either way, it has been a week of good work, great food, great people and great sights. We are off to Cairo on Friday for three days of training sessions at Cairo University and Ain Shams University. After that, we fly to Alexandria for a few sessions at the Bibliotheque Alexandrina.
