To Tozeur via Gabes ... 9am to 11 o??.

Here in Berber country as in many places throughout the world where old/ancient civilizations are dying or collapsing the youth are many times serving as guides for tourists anxious to see these people before they disappear- What is most interesting is that the specialization (IT, world market, etc) that is making many of the places less attractive to the young exposed via media to urban consumption, may also in the end make the subsistence/rural lifestyle more viable. In my mind much depends upon how fast the economies of the west adapt or fail to adapt to the new environmental and economic necessities the are coming!

Donkeys date palms and desert plus lots of wind and salt flats = today!

Hotel Karim with Karim the very helpful desk clerk (spoke good English). Room for 3, just 29 Dinars each w/ bath, hot water, heater, & breakfast.

Travel by bus leaving Tataouine at 9am to Tozeur with a 3 hour wait in Gabes between buses arriving in Tozeur at 4pm. Buses go ON TIME!

After dinner we returned and Karim asked the girls how was the food, did they like it? I went up to the room. Later, when Mari came up she reported that Karim had told her that the police had called several times and asked about us. Where did we go to eat, did we like the food, etc. Mari asked more about this since she was a bit upset to hear we were being "tracked" so to speak. Karim said that the police do this routinely but only for Americans & Israelis! So what to think about this? More later.
