Monastir, Tunisia - Part I

We lived in Monastir, Tunisia for over five months. After living in a place it is difficult to capture all of the things that you have seen and done. Bourguiba was the first president of an independent Tunisia and Monastir was his home. One of the things that dominate the Monastir skyline is the Bourguiba Mausoleum. Monastir is a popular tourist destination and parts of the original Media walls are well preserved.
