A LUNCH IN TUNISIA, WITH LASTING INSIGHTS

IT WAS MY FIRST VISIT to Tunisia, a predominately Muslim country. I was curious about what I would find, and there was much that thrilled and delighted me.

But I found even more was in store.

A friend had asked me to call on his brother-in-law in Sidi Bou Said when I got there. I had lunch with him and his family in this beautiful blue and white village overlooking the sea.
