Saturday 05 April, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Driving across the barren desert landscape of southern Tunisia in summer can be quite foreboding. There is not a lot to see, unless that is you have a fetish for sand and scenery of the light beige variety.

But when you come across vast salt lakes it can be quite a breathtaking sight.

What struck me was the contrast between the start whiteness of the salt, and the azure blue of the water.

Of course, like all places these days, commercialism and tourism has taken hold. However, there were no huge air-conditioned bus terminals or gift shops with fancy price tags; nope, this was it – just a young lad and his family with their roadside stalls.
