View from the Bedroom Window



It's hard to complain when I wake up to this every day.

And yet, here I go...

So Lea and I discovered an English version of the new Harry Potter in a bookshop on the main street of Tunis. It cost a mere 65 Tunisian dinar (roughly 50 American dollars). Yeah...looks like I will just have to wait. Sigh.

I miss country music. The stuff on my iPod, while good, is getting old. I need a new Rob Mix.

We're going to explore the rest of Carthage this afternoon after our siesta. I'm looking forard to seeing Dido's hill. We explored Tophet last week. Tophet = lots of baby graves. The Carthaginians were kind of creepy...

is that an island that is visible in the horizon? If so, do you know it's name?

looks very picturesque.

i tried to find a copy of Monopoly in arabic (it does exist). If you happen to visit an toy store or bookstore, and find an arabic edition of Monopoly...buy it, i'll cover the cost..

it is funny that you should mention that, because the commune recently purchased both Monopoly and Scrabble in Arabic, however they are kind of "bootleg" copies if you will. i'll try to find a legitimate edition, but if i can't i'll get the other.

i think the mountains in the background are on another part of the coast. i'll see if i can't discover their names. we kind of want to climb them if we get the chance.

The mountain is at the other side of the gulf of Tunis.
It's called "jbel boukornine" or "two horned mountain".
You can go there by taking train at Barcelona place station.
