A lack of tourists in Tunisia Blog
To not only stay in and around Tunis, I took a train to Sousse, which rose to importance shortly after the arrival of Islam. Here, the old Town is on UNESCO's world heritage list, with it's most treasured monument being over 1000 years old.
But, tourism was lacking. In 2015, two significant terrorist attacks, one in Tunis, the other in Sousse, still scares away tourists.
The tunisia national headdress is the fez, though they call it chechia. Not worn by the young, it's still easy to spot on the streets, with several artisans still producing them in the markets.
One nickname for the country is 'Tunisia the Green'. From the train, the country indeed seems quite green, even if faded, and dusty, making it more like a desolate, or desperate, green, reinforced by the ever-white, in a crumbling sense, hop-scotch architecture.
