Post-revolution Tunisia sights & sounds, Sousse Jan 2013 (playlist)



Post-revolution Tunisia sights & sounds, Sousse Jan 2013

A video playlist of a selection of sights and sound Heather and I captured while in and around the Tunisian coastal town of Sousse early in 2013.

The idea behind the phrase "When in Rome...", was never more apt than opting to travel as the locals do when visiting foriegn shores. Travelling by the popular form of public transport, the louage, was one such experience.

Soaking up the atmosphere, while taking refreshment at a cafe, (in this case in Sousse) watching the world go by, is a simple pleasure, perhaps all too often neglected when holidaying,

Our holidays are often more about sea and sun; we like to get out and about and see what is going in people's lives on the streets. Tunisia recently underwent a revolution, the undlerlying political tensions sometimes bubble to the surface. Seeing the manner in which the Police on the street react to these situations can give you a feel for how those in control wield their power.

Do you have some community news from around the Ormskirk area to share or a story to tell? Yes!
