Beautiful pictures Waleed,
I once had an art history professor who lived in Libya as a child, he always spoke of it's rich cultural history.
I would love to visit your country one day, but your current leader scares me. However, his son shows the character that might bring forth for a better future.
and welcome to A2K.
Wonderful to see these photos, thank you for posting them.
I've only seen the roman theater in Volterra (Tuscany) - and much less of that has survived.
Very nice photos. I'll have to look this city up. Like to know its history.
I believe modern day Libya is where Carthage was. It rivalled Rome and Hannibal with the elephants came from Carthage. Rome destroyed Carthage and took defeated Carthagians as slaves.
Your pictures are beautiful. My husband and I are going to Libya in October 2006 and these pcitures make me anxious for the trip.
@Greeting Card Mom,
many thanks to all of you
