Tunis 22 years later

Last time I was in Tunisia was in 1996 with my parents. This time I was just passing going through the capital Tunis, spending two days before going to Libya and two days after.

My couchsurfing hosts took me to a town called Sidi Bou Said where all the buildings were painted in the same white and blue colors. The view of the ocean there was also really nice, with different shades of turqouise blue.

On the International Womens Day August 13th there was a massive feminist protest that we joined. What was special this year was that the gay commity had come out with their flags too, demanding that homofilia should be decriminalised. A historical moment for Tunisia, which I celebrated with my couchsurfing hosts and their friends until late night.
