It was around 24 to 27 degrees Celcius around this time of the year (October 19, 2017) you can still wear something fashionably summer, but here I am anticipating it would be windy and all the time. I ended up packing and wearing a knitted crew neck from Ralph Lauren; good thing that I always keep a pair of shorts and jeans in my suitcase, in case I’m uncertain of the weather condition to the place I’m visiting. I could have packed a more summer outfit like T-shirt and a more colorful shorts.
I knew that I’d be walking a lot so I decided to wear my running shoes instead of the loafers that I packed, not to mention that most of the flooring is bricked – it wouldn’t be inconvenient to walk on something almost flat without cushion on your sole(ironically coming from me, I don’t usually choose comfort over style).
The sun does not set in this part of Tunisia, but this place is still beautiful as it is in the daytime and sunset hour. I’d probably visit the ruins in La Marsa the next time and some other interesting places here in Tunisia. I decided not to vlog anymore because I lose so much moment whenever I film in Place that I’m visiting for the first time. Café Sidi Chabaane is famous for its cliffside view cascading below, overlooking the yachts and sea line. Café Sidi Chabaane is also the place to take these vibrant pictures I took.
walking in the Upper village, there are many things you can find from their cultural Bowls and Vases and street art for sale in the area beautifully laid out for all the tourists to see.
anywhere you go you’ll see their signature colors – uniform shade of blue doors, white walls, and staircases. Iron grilles and it’s window screens (known as moucharabiehs, according to my friend) painted in Azure blue in the range of its pigment.
It’s so calming to see their culture’s way of living and aesthetics in this village, on how they decorate their textiles and patterns of their doors and windows.
there are a number of doors that will lead you to different artisan’s studio and shops. this place is will give so much inspiration for all artist out there. I saw some photographers and travel bloggers( like me) trying to feature this city. I wish I could have stayed for a few more days in this place.
but definitely, I’ll be back soon.
