Some nice days in Kairouan, Tunisia
But you should always be careful where you go and with whom! Never accept an offer by a strnger to guide you through the town. And if you do that, talk about the price before and always be aware of, that these guys will guide you through a mass of local shops and carpet store. Don't let yourself be bribed by the kindness of these guys. If you dont want to go to shops, they'll get angry and insulting.
The rest of the town is dirty and spoiled, with a lot of people hanging around, bagging and just doing nothing.
From the cultural side you can go there, but altogether don't tale yourself too much time for that place.
