On one of my offroad trips I found some old tanks standing peacefully on a hill a few kilometres west of Hammamet. At closer inspection the whole area seemed to be an old shooting terrain of the Tunisian army. The tanks are also the main tourist attractions on quad trips from Hammamet.Share on Facebook

In March we hit the road down south to Douiret, a little village near Tataouine. In Douiret we stayed in a nice Troglodyte Hotel “Hotel Résidence Douiret” in the old town. The following days we made several excursions to Chenini and the Ksour in the area. On our way home we stayed one night in Houmt Souk on Djerba to also visit some of the spots which appeared in the Star Wars movies.Share on Facebook

The region around Ain Draham, Jendouba Governorate, saw heavy snow fall in February of this year. The region gets snow almost every year, but usually only a few centimetres. This year it was extreme with up to a meter of snow in some regions. Later the region experienced heavy rainfall and together with the melting snow it had to endure flooding and landslides cutting several villages off for days. The inhabitants of the region received a lot of emergency aid from the government but also from Tunisians who drove in convoys to the region to distribute warm clothes, blankets and food.
On a Sunday a Tunisian friend accompanied me to this town in the hills of Northwestern Tunisia. These are some of the pictures of of our trip.Share on Facebook
During the Tunisian Revolution of Dignity of January 2011 many cars of local car dealers, who were connected and associated with the ex-President’s family clan, were publicly demolished and some burned. Later many of these wrecks were brought to a field in Carthage-Byrsa. Last Sunday, 27th February, art and architecture students, joined by local residents, paint on the remains of the remains of these cars to express their joy about the revolution and hope for the future.
