If you go in Tunisia you must go on Sahara trip. Something very unusual. Unforgettable experience. We visited Berber's village. It's incredible - people live in underground houses,like in the past long time ago,but they have radio,tv and lot of smiles on their faces. I think all happiness in this world is there. What a hospitality? Every day they have tourists in their homes,show them and make a tea for guests and all of that for some dinars or something like a lighter or something similar (something what you have in your bags-for you nothing but for them very special gift).
What can I say about riding camels? I feel like in some movie wearing traditional Bedouin dress(if you are not in it sand make you crazy,it's in your eyes,mouth,ears,everywhere). But don't forget any bottle to take some sands for home. Nice feeling is when come back home and see sand and salt. Take salt from salt-lake Chott-El-Jerid when you visit it and watch sunrises. It's like a sun comes from earth. What a colors,what a air-smell,what a feeling?
Seeing desert zoo,touching cold and wet snakes,cameleons and special acting from camels(they want to drink coca-cola from bottle) is so fun.
If you want climb palm's tree you can do it there or just try it. We eat fresh dates just taken from palms tree. We spent night in very luxury hotel in the middle of the desert with half pool inside and half outside of the hotel. We smoked space shisha (tobacco with an apple,,strawberry,watermelon and hundred of another tested),eaten delicious dates,drank date's liquor or tea and all of those were spaced with lot of music and dancing.
Land cruisers riding throw the sand dunes,visiting three kinds of oasis(mountain,sand and salt oasis)is amazing experience.Cristal clear water in mountain oasis. We washed our hands with some stones(parts of rocks) and look miracle-it makes foam like a soap and we washed our hands in the water in a little canals and they were realy clean. It was near by Algerian border and we had a spectacular view of Atlas Mountain.
How much different feelings? How much unforgettable experience? Was I in "Star Tracks"? Was I "English Patient"? Was I in some advertising for testing cars? I ask myself :"Oh,God where am I? Am I in the moon or some another planet? I don't know. I just feeling so good!"
I forgot say something about El-Jem and Kairouan. In El-Jem is the 3th largest colosseum in the world. When you there you can make yourself movie and back a lot of years ago. Kairouan is very important for muslim people because is the 4th holiest town for islamic people. If you have possibility bay some handcrafted carpet.
What else can I say? You must go there to feel and lived this experience! You will never sorry for it. Magnificent experience like in another planet,but don't forget to take changes and lot of little things for tips and presents everywhere throw the desert. This trip make me happy,amazing,fool of wonderful and softly feelings for a long time. I feel like I was somewhere in another time in some unknown place.
