Tunisia on the Blogging A – Z Challenge

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 23088 – 1113

Here’s the haps:

So, to be honest, Tunisia doesn’t hold a lot of interest to me at all plus the U.S. State Department website says it’s not really a safe place to go. The big tourist resorts are probably okay and using tour guides are often a good thing but the risk of terrorist attacks is pretty high. There is just one thing I want to see there.

The North Africa American Cemetery. A cemetery, Herb? Long-time readers and even many newer ones will remember the story of how I was named after my Dad’s favorite brother. In fact, I told it most recently last year during the A – Z challenge, here. The soldiers that were lost at sea in the government-covered-up Rohna Disaster are memorialized on a wall there. My uncle’s name is there.

Likelihood of this happening within the next year: 0%
Likelihood of this happening in my lifetime (Lord willing, of course): 15%
Likelihood of running into someone I know or met on the Internet: ??%


  1. We once went to Tunisia – not incidentally an experience I would choose to repeat – and managed to purchase a slab of nougat from a market that was the size of a continent!
