We are still enjoying our holidays in Tunisia. But because bathing in the sun the whole day is not really our interest, we did another excursion today!
We went to the old city of Hammamet, to visit the Kashba. We went there by taxi (which is one of the cheapest ways to get from A to B in Tunisia) and the driver dropped us of right in front of the old Medina. One really annoying thing about Tunisia (or at least about the touristic areas of Tunisia) is the habitude of the street vendors… As soon as we got out of the taxi, there were several men who tried to sell us anything… They sometimes can get very  rude or try to trick you by pretending they know you from the hotel (we heard “hey, remember me? I’m the cook of your hotel” several times… ;) ) Well, to cut the story short, this is the reason why we won’t go to the markets in the Medinas… 
So as soon as we got rid of the salesmen, we noticed how wonderful the old Hammamet looked like (you can find us in the left corner on the bench!)
This could as well be a postcard, couldn’t it?
 We then went to the Kasbah which was built in the 15 century. We felt like in an old movie!
We climed on top of it and –again- we had an amazing view!
 ⁠⁠⁠As it was very windy Caro told us to be very careful… that’s why we first hide behind a great wall…
 But then we became bolder…
 In this picture you can see the Tunisian flag in the background:
 And then we discovered some cannons! And we were allowed to climb on them... That was so much fun! They must be really old!
 We finished off our day with some Tunisian peppermint-tea and a shisha! (yes, it was very dark in there and the waiter did luckily not ask for our IDs to check our age ;-))
