What a regular day in Tunisia looked like


We’re starting the day with driving across town to pick up Sied, Maurizios employee.
This is the Tunisian copy of Starbucks that we drove by every day.
Sied starts his day by dropping his cellphone in a waterpool.
Common sign.
After a meeting with Tunisia Telecom, I’ll watch my man climb up a tower with Sied.
In the afternoon we might head off to the local foodmarket for some fresh meat. It’s quite morbid, as you can see. I have a photo of the backside of that cowhead but I think that is too morbid to show you.
I make my famous fried chicken for dinner.
Our neighbors rings the doorbell and hands over a traditional Tunisian desert (chocolate pudding with  caramels and nuts on top). It was almost a little bit of an competition. The best homewife competition. I had to make them something typical Swedish or American every time she handed over a big bowl of couscous.

    oooh i just moved to tunis a few months ago and i am craving starbucks like crazy…. i heard about soltana coffee but i dont know where its located.. could you give me a heads up???

    • Hi Jackie!
      Wow, fun, what are you doing there? Just be careful, I’ve heard things are not the same anymore since after the revolution, especially for girls.
      If Soltana coffee is still there it should be in Charguia II, on the road between Ariana and La Marsa. Try to search on Google maps.
      Let me know if its still there! Good luck!
