We traveled in North Africa--Tunisia and Egypt--in November and December 2004.
A boat--could be anywhere in the Med.
Hands serve as knockers on many Tunisian doors.
In the mosque.
Men get to wear interesting clothes...
A faithful worker in the ruins.
The Romans left a lot of good stuff in Tunisia.
Women in the open-air market.
Four girls in the open-air market--are they sisters?
This is what a $20 hotel looks like in Tunisia.
A lonely bird in the Sahara.
An amazing sunset deep in the Sahara in sourthern Tunisia. Had to dismount and dismiss my camel to take this picture.
Root vegetables in the souk.
Fast roast chicken...
In the souk--any souk in North Africa.
A detail from a Roman mosaic in the Bardo museum in Tunis.
There really isn't anything else like the Big Pyramids.
Lotsa camels around the pyramids
