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.

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.
