Street in Kairouan, Tunisia

by Jennifer Patience August. 28, 2009 1724 views

Kairouan was founded in around 670 and after Mecca and Medina is regarded as one of the important Muslim centres.
The medina is the centre of the city and while it is not as big or bustling as that of Tunis, it is well preserved and interesting.
Apparently the Cairo street scenes in Raiders of the Lost Ark were filmed in the winding medina streets of Kairouan.

Amazing shot! The shadow on the ?man's? face adds mystery. Who is he? Where is he going at 9:05?

I thought the water bottle was just sitting there. But on closer examination, it seems to be connected to the air conditioner by a clear drain tube. So much detail in this photo!!
