a penny for your thoughts
we were lucky enough to be invited to lunch at a home in Kairouan, Tunisia. this lovely lady absolutely made our day. my travel buddy and I assumed she (being the grandmother of the family) was tired when she disappeared from the main courtyard of the family home half way through lunch. boy were we wrong! she returned in the head scarf made famous by Muamar Khadafi of neighboring Libya and began to rant and gesture just like Khadafi did in his years of ruling lunacy. little did we know we had a budding comedienne right here with us. meeting with locals after the Jasmine Revolution that started the Arab Spring movement was so exciting, everyone had an opinion and felt free to share it! (even Grandma- LOL)
