Tataouine, Tunisia

Meet Luca and Tiziana, two Italians from Torino on vacation in southern Tunisia. I met them New Year's Eve when I was seated at their table, and they were kind enough to let me tag along on their tour of the ksars and villages around Tataouine. Luca is an engineer for Mondo (the company that did the athletic flooring for the Atlanta, and now the Beijing, Olympics)and flies all over the world working on their projects. Tiziana is a graphic artist for the City of Torino and doesn't get to fly anywhere. The drama of these two (She doesn't love me enough!) reminds me of what I like best about Italians, and especially about these two. They made my stay in Tataouine fantastic.

Now, I know everyone is feeling sorry for me out here ("Doesn't this guy have a job"? "All he does is ride around and take pictures"! "Didn't I hear he was actually in Burbank, United States"?), so here is the Hotel Sangho, my retreat in Tataouine, Tunisia. Boo-hoo me.
