Its been coming to our attention that many readers of this journal are beginning to lose us geographically. Rather than take you to task for throwing away your old globe from elementary schoool, heres a map you can look at, that has pretty much all the countries labeled that we are going to.
Found Algeria? North of Africa, in the middle kind of to the left? Good. So whats happening here?
As for why the romans were here, (besides their desire to conquer and rule the world)its quite obvious—its beautiful. I really didn’t expect Algeria to be so green. There is plenty of desert in the south, but as you can see, the north(where we are sticking to, as its already June and hot in the desert) is full of mountains, rivers and farms.
in other news…you can hear a radio story i reently did for a BBC progarm called The World; by clicking here. The story is about the clean up trip we took to the white desert, egypt.
and if you get a free subscription to E! magazine, a>you can click here and read an article i wrote about the cave dwellers in granada, spain (sorry about the subscription thing, i dont like that either)
Back to the present day and algeria.. we are now in Cherchell, another beach town, recovering from a week of big city life. We’ve got a couple more stops on our way back east, where we’ll cross back into Tunisia. We spent a few days in Tunis(the capital) earlier this month, and well have more on that soon. One note however: in a major surprise, Tunisian food is slammin! In my opinion, its been the best food so far of anywhere, with Italy a close second. Well have more pics, details n’ recipes comin soon…a tut alors…
