Tunisia – Interesting Concepts of Freedoms…

I find that my concept of freedom is different from many other people. One of my criteria for freedom is set by this example: I believe that an important freedom is when I can pass through a border into another country unhindered by regulations that impede my progress…

Tunisia is such a country and when traveling from a country such as Russia who has the same proper border controls, then it makes for a very nice excursion from country to country…

I do not like taking my shoes off, taking my belt off, tossing my bottle of water in the trash, having someone feel my crotch for bombs and questioning me about my nitro spray bottle. When I experience these types of anti-social behavior from a country, I never go back or I leave them to better pastures in the first place…

Traveling the Middle East and Asia is such a pleasure compared to traveling Europe as such. Tunisia is a great example of a wonderful border crossing…

Sveta was able to drink on a bottle of water all the way through customs and border and never once did someone threaten us with any form of terrorism tactics against us for having a bottle of water. In fact one metal detector and all is cool when crossing a Tunisian border. Why even mothers could bottle feed or breast feed their babies as they crossed the border and no one, I mean no one attacked them…

Strange Huh? You would think that a country that is located in the Middle East, where the terror capitals of the world reside, would be the least free countries in the world…

Not so! It seems to me that the countries that claim freedom as their trademark are the least free. It also seems that the countries that are proclaimed as terrorist hotbeds are actually the most free countries…

So my concept of freedom is a country that allows me to pass freely within her borders and welcomes me as I enter. Tunisia is such a country, They were friendly and helpful from the border to the big cities. People are nice and polite! The world is so different from what is portrayed, that I was not sure that I was even in Tunisia and maybe we were lost and had entered another country. You know like where Peter Pan lives in “Never Never Land…”

I guess it is my concept of freedom that is at play here, but Sveta agrees and thousands and thousands and thousands of French, Germans and Russians agree also…

Tunisia is a paradise for freedom lovers…

PS: Sveta and I talked about traveling to Europe! We looked at each other after we see what hassles it is to cross a border in Europe and said to each other, “No way!”

I guess Europe will not get our money…
