Picture Diary: Sousse, Tunisia

A couple of years ago I worked for a company that was based in Sousse, Tunisia. I had to go for training on site for close to a month (I live in Montreal). Even though it was tough leaving my husband and young son at home, I always love a good travel adventure and chose to make the most of my time there. Here are some photos from Sousse.

Sousse is a hotspot for tourism and has many all inclusive resorts. The company put me up in one! Here's a view from my hotel. It was 18 degrees Celsius when I was there, but not complaining compared to winter temperatures at home.

I had the same cab driver come and take me everyday to work and pick me up in the evening from the office. It was a 10 minute drive and costed about the equivalent of $2.00 Canadian. Even though I stayed in a nice hotel, we passed by empty plots of land that were full of garbage and there were sometimes a heard of goats eating from them. 
One day in front of the office, which was super modern, I was shocked to see this donkey pulling a cart full of empty water bottles. I asked one of my co-workers (who is from Sousse) about it and she said this is totally the norm. It's their version of a recycling truck.

The people in Sousse are super friendly. I became good friends with a couple of my colleagues and they took me around. Here's a couple of images from the medina which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site

The food is so good.
