Camels and Crafts in Tunisia


When the TechWomen Tunisia Delegation was not touring, or eating, or meeting with remarkable STEM women and girls, we did some shopping and camel riding.  The 16 March Women’s Enterprise for Sustainability (WES) – Entrepreneurship and Social Media Training included a reception with craft vendors.  After the sad and scary Bardo Museum attack on 18 March 2015 in Tunis caused an early end of our formal Delegation meetings, most of the Silicon Valley delegates stayed very close to the hotel before our flights home. Luckily, there were camel rides on the beach and a Carrefour market and small shops nearby.  At the Carrefour, we bought Tunisian honey, olive oil, harissa spice, and other delicacies. I also found some date candy and date syrup at the Tunis airport, so I was able to bring small gifts home.
