tunisia after the arab spring

we went to tunisia for my 40th birthday. when people ask me, "why tunisia?", i like to answer, "democracy." the arab spring started in tunisia, and we wanted to witness its transformation. besides, leisure travel to tunisia is down 50%; do you know how many people were at dougga with us? nobody; by the way, dougga boasts some of the most well-preserved roman ruins outside of italy. check it.
