This summer was Henrik's first time in Tunisia. I was incredibly excited to show Henrik where I'm from; as a dual-citizen, I am very fond of my "other home" and take great pride in my North African roots. I was able to learn a little more about my country's history as well while we explored ruins left over from the great Carthaginian Empire. I love the mix of old and new world that exists in Tunisia, and wish we had a bit more of that here. It gets tiresome, always seeing the same colossal gray buildings of concrete and the blinking billboards and signs by the highway. I think there's something to say about preserving and honoring what was.
Oh, and by the way, that beautiful lady accompanying us? That's my cousin Farah! :)
