A walk to Parc Sidi Bou Said in Tunisia’s capital: peace, flowers and Labib
If the rain holds off, March is really good walking weather in Tunis. It’s about two miles from La Marsa, Cite le Pins to Sidi Bousaid. The sun was shining. The air was clear. The flowers were brightly in bloom.
Labib was a rather inspired mascot. It is the desert fox (Vulpes zerda), which is found in southern Tunisia.
As a mascot, the long-eared, blue jumpsuit-wearing Labib lasted for 20 years until April 2012 but statues survive across the country.
The green expanse was peaceful.
