Not far from the capital Tunis lies the small clifftop town of Sidi Bou Said, a picture
postcard collection of charming streets with beautiful views across the azure Mediterranean.
It can be easily reached by train within about forty minutes from Tunis, but I decided to stay
I spent probably too long wandering around looking for places to stay, as it's not a large town,
and I ended up settling on the first place I looked at anyway. I had dinner in a restaurant
that Sarkozy and Bruni had been at a few weeks earlier, and accidentally stumbled upon some
kind of presidential compound, when a man with a gun told me to get lost.
