Tunisia: Everyone in the big cities knows who you are…

The picture is a photo just taken by Sveta and she wanted me to put it in the article. She said, “That is you posting this article.”

So there is the picture… 🙂

So back to the article – In our travels around the great little country Tunisia, we have discovered that everyone knows you and they even have served you food or helped get your suitcases to your room. (Except, I carried my own suitcases! Oops…)

What I mean by this is that we all have a yellow band around our left wrist and it has the hotel information on it. The locals know what color belongs to what hotel and they try to act like they have already met you as you travel around and look at the sights…

So it is, “Hey, I know you, you I served food to! I carried your bags and or I cleaned your room!”

Then after they try to get you caught by those statements, they then try to get you to go see their families! Now I have to tell you some of these guys have sisters all over the country… 🙂

Their English is limited to virtually what I just wrote above in the quote and the Russian ability is zilch. So while Sveta and I know two languages, it is the two that Tunisians do not know…

The hotel is literally Germans and French and the staff can speak either language fluently. Then Italian runs a close third, but English is at the bottom of the list…

Since French is a strong basis of English and I spent several years in Germany, I understand most of what is going on and I just act like a grouchy Russian, which by the way there are about 40 of us grouchy Russians running around here…

I have seen one Canadian and a couple of Britain’s, but it looks like I am the only American out of around a thousand guests staying at the hotel. In fact that makes me just perfectly happy and no one bothers me…

I am going to cut it short and since dinner is about ready and it is yummy, yummy and more yummy here with the food department. I do not want to miss the dinner bell…

You all have a great day and weekend! Sveta and I have been swimming up a storm, in a very beautiful ocean…
