Souk el Chaouachine

The souk el Chaouachine is situated in the old slave market of the Tunis ancient quarter called the Medina.

Near the end of my time working in Tunisia, I was able to slip away as a tourist to enjoy the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a truly Tunisian quarter. Along a somewhat short and crowded pedestrian street, a wide variety of products could be purchased. The merchants and customers alike were a fascinating bunch and I rarely dropped my camera lens because of all the beauty.
