Tunisia Part 2

So this was the view from our room. Nice sunset eh?

Coming back to the room in the afternoon was quite exciting as we'd get presents.

While we were at the Sousse Medina we came across a wee cafe place that had a museum attached, it was a lovely wee place. The following photos are from the ground level bit, tomorrow I'll take you underground. ;)

A certain someone told me these needed a post of their own. ;)

A bit of home crafting

Two traditional Tunisian wedding outfits. Look a bit scratchy to me but very detailed.

And apparently this is what a 'poor' Tunisian woman would wear back in the day. Not bad for slumming it, better than joggers and Uggs eh? LOL

Thanks for all your comments about my lousy nights sleep, I can happily report that last night I slept like a baby, one with a full belly and not one that wakes up every two hours screaming. ;)

Wow, what great pictures. I want the gold dress!! I love the workmanship on the textile. The weaver is using such vibrant colors.

Glad you had some sleep dear!

Loving those rusty sewing machines. Keep bringing on these photos, great to see what you did and where you went. Glad to see you had a better night. I always resort to the old relax each bit of the body technique, think it isn't working and then next thing am waking up....... :O)
