After a week in southern Tunisia, we spent a couple of days in the capital, Tunis. This is a modern city with a small older section.
We stayed on an upper floor in a modern hotel on a main boulevard. The neighborhood was not that interesting, but was clean and vaguely Parisian. The rooftops were peppered with satellite dishes, many on every building.
We walked around the old town, a labyrinth of a bustling covered market and little quiet alleys. We visited a food market with spices, herbs, fruits and vegetables and fly-covered meat including a tray of turtles.
