Medina of Tunis (تونس‎ )

Medina of Tunis
Every place we went to on our vacation, Heather found a cat to pet.  I’m going to have to do a whole post on cats of Europe :).

 The Medina in Tunis was crowded and noisy compared to the other places we had been.  If you love to shop, this is the place to go.  Unfortunately, on this excursion, we were not allowed to shop anywhere except this rug shop.  We passed many, many shops with clothing, leather goods, and tons of jewelry but were told by our guide (the guy on the phone in the right hand corner) that we couldn’t stop at any of these places.

We were forced to sit through a spill about these rugs and were told we could not leave.  Everyone in our group was very unhappy as we felt like we were being held captive.  We had about 15 minutes of free time so we did meet several guys that were very pushy sellers but had a good time haggling with them.

These stairs of the rug shop led up to the rooftop where we had a beautiful view of the surrounding area.

I think cats are just naturally drawn to my daughter.  They can tell that’s she a cat lover !

We had lunch at Essaraya, a beautiful place with wonderful food.

I honestly am not sure what I ate but most of it was very tasty to my American palate.  We started off with these appetizers, then the meal was brought in followed by dessert.
