ElJem Que J'Aime

This is a picture I came across reading a nice tunisian blog, toon-c, whom I hope won't be upset and just forgive me for having used it without his prior permission. Anyway the reason I am posting it here is mainly because I found it really unique, I like in fact the colour of the Colisseum which, indeed, makes our dear italian neighbours somehow envious when they visit ElJem. Well I wonder if the old man in the picture, whom I personally know, is aware that his pic is posted on a blog and as a matter of fact it could travel around the world, good for him!

Hi Thysdrus,

My blog avatar belongs to David Byrne.


I found it by searching "tunisian" using Google image search.
