Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, is incredible is its own way. It has not only modernized itself to meet the international standards but also has cultivated and protected the long running tradition. It is an important commercial and economic centre of North Tunisia. While moving around in the streets of Tunisia, you can discover the impressive metallurgical work and exquisite carpets and other items.

I cannot forget my travel to Djerba, Tunisia. It is a wonderful island I must say, an island in North African Coast specifically. I can still feel the heat of this island, but the charming destination enchants with its white menzels (houses), field with apricots, grenadines, lemon, oranges, pomegranates, figs and grapes plantation. There are small mosques, Borj el-Kebir and the (Houmt-Souk) market centre. It is rightly called the Isle of Forgetfulness.

What better end could it be to end my Tunisia Holiday by trying the local specialty which has influences of several culture. I remember when I had dined in one of the restaurants of Tunis, I was offered menu which featured various cuisines. On seeing the list, I felt why the hell was I eating the regular breakfast and dinner in my Tunis hotel. The names made me think they were mouth-watering and delicious. I scrolled my finger tip to chorbas and ordered for one.I was told it was prepared with Vermicelli and vegetable soup. I liked the soup and wished to have the restaurant earlier.
As it was a short vacation in Tunisia, I could not explore more Tunisian cuisines. I hope when I come again to this country, I will make a list of the cuisines and enjoy everyday for a change.

Today is 25/7/2008 and it is 7:00 am. Whenever I am in vacation, I make it a point that I should feel free of all the wordly. But as usual I cannot make it. Now when I am on my Tunisia holiday, I am off my bed and experiencing the morning life with a cup of tea in hands. Its indeed a lovely morning. Sometimes, I wonder what would have Tunisia looked like during Roman period. Certainly, must have been wonderful. During my stay in one of the hotels in Tunis, though I did not have much advantage to visit the ancient Roman remains and sites, I made sure to visit the Bardo National Museum. Amazing collection of artefacts from archaeological sites.
