Thanks heikkil,

This picture of Tabarka brings back a lot of good memories; I spent a week there 15 years ago on my way to Algeria. I hope it will never be spoilt with tourists like Hammamet or Sousse. I grow up between Tunis and Nabeul, I moved to New York 11 years ago, so I went from riding in the desert and twisty mountain road to the insane NYC traffic

Keeeep the pictures coming
