The Tunis Medina is the old city portion of Tunis and was founded in 698 AD.  Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage site.  I spent two half days exploring a small section of the Medina.  I say a small section because the Medina is roughly 650 acres with over a hundred thousand inhabitants.

On the second day Nancy and I explored together and had lunch at a restaurant I had found on the first day – food was very good but no wine or any other alcohol was available. Ahh, the advantage of traveling in Catholic Italy versus Muslim Tunisia is wine is available almost everywhere in Italy and not so much in Tunisia.  As interesting as the narrow pedestrian streets, shops, doors, and everything else were,  it was the people I found most interesting.
