Kebili, Tunisia

Here's a list of what I'm enjoying about this trip:
1. Meeting people like Abdelhamid, pushing my comfort zone, and seeing what happens.
2. Taking a nice photograph.
3. Working on the blog.
4. Meeting the very occasional English speaker.
5. Seeing progress on the map.
6. Email.
7. A long, hot bath after a day on the road.
8. A warm bed.
9. Talking to Polly and Mia on the satellite phone...even at $1.30/minute.
10. A delicious Orange.
11. Biking, especially moments without a headwind with everything working well.
12. Getting off the bike. Nice bike, but it feels so good to stop!
13. The occasional feeling of security.
14. Sun!
15. Coffee breaks: thick, dark Tunisian coffee with steamed milk and a lump of sugar.

Things I won't miss:
1. So many vulnerabilities: do I have everything, what does he want, am I safe...?
2. Arab music, at least what I've heard so far...
3. So much solitude. A little is nice.
4. Headwinds.
5. Diarrhea.
6. Car exhaust.
7. Smokers.
8. Sore throats.
