Sidi Bou Said

Just prior to the new year, I took a afternoon trip to Sidi Bou Said. Located about 30 mins from Tunis, Sidi Bou Said is one of the most popular villages with tourists and locals alike.

 The buildings are all painted with the traditional white and blue. This was apparently done to represent the white of the jasmine flower and the blue from the Mediterranean.

This is a Bombalouni, greatest doughnut-esq thing in the whole wide world...

We visited Cafe Sidi Chabaane, which has the most amazing views over the sea. Although the prices are highly inflated due to the picturesque setting it was still a great place to rest your feet.

Tunisia continues to provide new places that are more and more beautiful than the next.

    I want a Bombalouni!! I also just love your pics and that coffee is amazing. Why not import some coffee cups and you have a new business for all those tourists who will descend during summer.

    Luv ya
