Travelogue Part 14 - Desert Castles

2010.02.25
pixel
Day 5 . We were on our way by dawn's early light.

The South end the island is connected to the mainland by a 4 mi
(6 km) long causeway between the Gulf of Bou Grara and the Mediterranean Sea. The causeway was originally built by - WHO ELSE?- the Romans, some 2000 years ago!!!

In the South of Tunisia, around Medenine and Tataouine there are still a lot of Berber villages called Ksours (Ksar in singular) to be found.
pixel
These multistory buildings served as communal houses for people, and fortified granaries for their crop. They were built around courtyards, with windows facing inwards.

Our guide, Mohamed, patiently waiting for us to explore this unique place.
Hang in there, there is more to come from here tomorrow!

365edgar You had me with the first image, Agnes. I adore the way the light is peeking through the clouds and illuminating the water! Beautiful and well done!

saso63 ....hát igen! Az utolsó három fotó alapján azt várnám, hogy egyszercsak megjelenne egy burnuszos - arcnélküli légiós. Kürtjébe fújna, és az égről lemasírozna a Láthatatlan Légió....
Nagyon szép a sorozatod.....
