Tunisia and magic carpets


My very first magic carpet was woven in Tunisia.  I found it in a souq – an open air market which sells everything from jewelry to ceramic dishes to rugs. The rug was woven of wool, and I could use it as a blanket on chilly nights when I camped outside.

The first people to live in this area were stone age cave dwellers called Troglodytes.  I can see why humans like to come to Tunisia – there are many miles of sandy beaches along the Mediterranian coastline, though in the south part of the country there is desert, and it is hot!
