osso, I used to buy quite a few things during my travels in the past, but quit cold turkey, because my wife says "don't buy anything!" I bought candy, a leather purse, 2 bookmarks, and cloth napkins for about US$11 total on this trip.

Joeblow, Glad you enjoyed this thread.

Flowers for all who visit this thread.

Nice!






I'm not much of a buyer on trips either, because I like to travel light.

Did buy a pair of earrings from the art museum in Chicago, and a Chicago cap from Walgreen's on Michigan Avenue..

Great stuff, c.i.

Quite a few people from my online goblet drumming group are either from Tunesia or have studied there. Hopefully, some day I'll go there to get a drum there myself.

Although we saw the most important sites in Tunisia including the varied countryside, this tour lacked the opportunity to walk. The only time I did some "real" walking was during a leisure time we had in Suesse; I walked from the hotel to a shopping street about three miles away. I probably walked about ten miles. I stopped at a bar a few blocks from the hotel for a cold beer on the way back.
