When we arrived at Kairouan, the city didnt quite look as the big important city of the islam in Tunisia. It seemed more than a area, focusing on tourism.

When we were looking for the famous mosque of Kairouan, a somehow dirty guy on a small motor bike wasgiving us signs to park at a certain place. We thought he would do this, because we were obviously looking for a parking space. We wanted to givehim an tip, but he said no no no, starting to lead us through the town. But he didn't guide us to the mosque, he showed us some traditional doors, meanwhile leading us to all the craftsmen of Kairouan, especially a carpetsweaver company. Just to give you an advice, refuse always to go by a local or talk about the price before, if you want to go with them.

It was really no real guided tour, and when we said we want to go back to the car, he said he wants to have now 25 Dinar for each person. That would mean he gets 25 Euro for a f....... merchant tour.

At that time we didnt want to stay in the city, because he got really angry. So we didnt see that mosque at all, but we got to know the arabic mentality!

Tunis Nightlife

Tunisia - overviewTunisia has been termed as the kaleidoscope nation of Northern Africa. From Mediterranean beaches to the Sahara desert and from ancient souks to modern day malls, Tunisia has it all. This Arab-Berber nation is one of the most liberal in the Islamic world where alcohol is freely available and women need not feel intimidated. The capital city of Tunis reflects its country’s cultural diversity. Its French colonial past has a far-reaching influence evident even until this day and age. One of the most obvious examples is in its cuisine that is a unique blend of sophisticated French styles with Arab spice. The city’s architecture... Read more »
