The Medina in Tunis, Tunisia

While in Tunis, the tour guide brought my group to the shops in the Medina, the oldest part of Tunis.  There, a rug merchant presented his wares, explaining how the various carpets were made.  I didn’t purchase a carpet, but I did bring home a souvenir that I bargained for with one of the salesmen.  I usually dislike bargaining, but I really didn’t need the object for which I haggled, so the experience actually was a lot more enjoyable than I anticipated.  Above the covered alleys of the Medina, there is a beautifully tiled rooftop area with a panoramic view of Tunis.
