Carthage and Sidi Bou Said

Today we visited two very interesting sights. We took in the Punic ruins of Carthage that were inhabited more than 2200 years ago. They were invaded and destroyed by the Romans.

Later in the day we visited the village of Sidi Bou Said, a suburb of Tunis, that is perched high above the Mediterranean. It is an artisans village and lots of art is displayed and for sale.

In the evening we had a typical Tunisian meal of Couscous at an authentic Sfaxienne cuisine restaurant known as Restaurant Pastacaza.
