FINAL REFLECTIONS OF MY TRAVEL 2015
Many Many Taxis
1 Hot Air Balloon
2 Few Private Cars
Lots of Walknig
5 Languages that I butchered but attempted nonetheless
4 (actually 5 since Iran had the Rial & the Toman) Currencies
I can’t even count how many Mosques
10 + Roman Ruins(they certainly did a lot of conquering!)
Cave Hotels(But the best in Chenini Tunisia) & all sorts of other type of Hotels
Valleys & Mountains
Cities & Countrysides
Lots and Lots of deserts
Fabulous Food adventures
Some new sweets & some oldies but goodies
New Spices and Old ones used new
Too Much Cola
Squat Toilets in all levels of cleanliness and then not so much
Throne Toilets with a twist
No Paper down the pipes…only in trash cans
Trash Cans constantly eluded me…seems in the US we like the idea of Public Trash Cans, the rest of the world not so much!
It’s amazing how well I could ask for directions using hand signals…broken Spanish, Farsi, Turkish, French, some version of Arabic…peppered with a little English AND a Map.
There are lots of Dopplegangers in this World…
Rules for Lines/Cues are not usually followed…especially Older Women…they just cut all lines…I am looking forward to being an unabashed Line cutter when I get old.
Each Country was distinctly Different!
Bags of wonderful unique Chocolate
I thought it would be hard dressing in a hijab and tunics BUT it turned out to be quite easy and freeing since I rarely worried about my hair! But at times, the tunics were a bit warm, especially in 115 degree desert
Very Easy area of the world to travel
Fruits & Veggies much tastier & Juicy
CNN is a far better Network outside the US…Show tons of short documentations on all sorts…
…and 6 Incredible Weeks of Memories
The world is an amazingly fabulous place…but my garden and home own my soul!
Sidi Bou Said-Coastal Town close to Tunis
