The Tunisian Adventure

Tunis turned out to be a bit more of an adventure than we were expecting. As a blond hair, blue eyed woman, I stood out quite a bit and attracted more stares than I really wanted. Tim enjoyed wandering through the Souks and exploring the neighboorhood around Carthage. It rained so hard in Tunis the night we were supposed to head back to Palermo that the streets flooded and we ended up missing our ferry crossing. Since the next ferry is not until Saturday, we're hopping a plane to Palermo this morning and then heading to Taormina by train. I will be happy to get back into Italy.

We made it to Taormina and after only one bus trip in the wrong direction, managed to find our hostel. Gianni at Gianni House is very friendly and we would definitely recommend this place if you find yourself in the area. Today is laundry day, the sun is out, and it's great to be back in Italy.
