I arrived by train from Sousse and got off the train then walked to the centre of town. I stayed at Residence el Arich which was nice and reasonable. there are plenty of things to do in the town. I ended up doing a tour of the Palmerie on a caleche(horse and carriage). As usual i was talked into it by one of the drivers his name was Aymen and he turned out to be an excellent and inforamtive guide through this interesting part of the city. His caleche is number 70 and his horse is called mo mo after maurice chevalier. He speaks fluent french and italian but not english. i went out with him the next day as i enjoyed his company and his laid back atttitude.
