Sights in the City of Tunis, Tunisia

Our tour bus only made one stop in Tunis, so most of the pictures I took were through the bus windows.  While in the Medina, we stopped near the Tunis City Hall, a modern structure that blends well with the older, white-washed architecture.  A common sight was door painted blue and decorated with metal studs, such as the door of the Hopital Aziza Othmana, originally a military barracks that was converted to a hospital.  On the streets stand a clock tower, affectionately called “Little Ben”, and an interesting and beautiful sculpture located at a crossroads.
