South of Tunisia
Daytrip in the South of Tunisia
passing by the salted lake , in the mainland next to the island of Djerba.
Another speciality of the region: the olives. There're numerous and vast olive groves.
you can also visit some markets of local products. They really sell local products, but i had rather the impression to see a livestock market , and we're the livestock. You're harassed everywhere: it's impossible to walk peacefully for more than 2 metres.
It's a pity cause there're some really nice local markets. Don't hesitate not to enter in those markets you are not interested to. You can just have a walk in the street sof the cities. And if you've 5 minutes you can have a tea in one of the bars of the street (which are frequented just by men) to have a good impression of the country.
Once you're arrived in the South, the scenery changes and it becomes desert. Its here, in the mountains of Atlas, which have been shooted the Georges Lucas' movie: Star Wars
Again one of the "disinfected" markets, where there're only tourists.
Sometimes you'll see also a little of vegetables, but it's very rare.
Here's the village of Tataouine. It's really the world's end.Vraiment le bout du monde. But it's so agreeable. On the other end, to live there you really have to be born inside !
Coming back from Djerba, you'll inevitably pass by this street which cross the sea.
There, a rainy day (everybody says that it never rains there. But evidently there're some ecceptions...) we decided to visit the country by ourselves. So we followed the advices of the guide (who sells his own excursions) and we left to a city that was supposed to be really close. We're 12, so we needed to find 3 taxis. Then, we set off .
As you can see, the only interesting thing of these wonderful cities are a school and a bakery. We will surely never forget the super advices of the guide....I hope that he gives some better ones to his customers ! But it's normal, if you think that this is his only source of revenues.
Then we decided to go to the big city of Midoun. At least we knew we could find something to see there...
View of the main square
and a little market more or less indoor. There you'll find fresh fish, olives, meat, local bread, fruits and vegetables.p..
Masi... that day tha market wasn't open, so we're obliged to content ourselves with the touristic shops.
Here we are on the way back, on the street of the market of Midoun...
On the way, a guy who pick up some wasps, or a kind of. It's incredible if you consider the size of the animal.
Then, we finished making an excursion to djerba. The aim was to travel through the countryside in turn by caravan, by camel and by horse.
We can see that the scenery is quite arid but this give a real impression abut what the South of Tunisia is.
