Tunisia day 5

We made it to Sousse in the end today – I think the timing was bad in two ways. Being a Friday in an Islamic country I suspect the Souks (loosely translated as market) in the Medina were extra quiet. I suppose this meant less hassle too. It was a good experience though. Something I can say I’ve done in my life.

I may not have haggled when buying anything (well how can you haggle when the marked price was around 50p anyway) but it was still a fascinating and rather odd place. You see odd things happen like store-owners throwing water all over the ground outside their pitch.

At first your natural reaction is to assume it’s a ritual of some kind but it turns out to be just an attempt to stop dust blowing around outside their shop.

Rest of the day we just relaxed by the pool, had a lovely meal then watched the show which was just music and dancing. Still an excellent day but dawning more than ever that the holidays over soon and tomorrow is going to be an early start and long day.
