    Musé Bardo

    July 24, 2020 in Tunisia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Today is yesterday.
    And we just woke up and had the famous breakfast @Le Calife ;)
    Took a taxi to the Bardo Museum to see the vast collection of Roman mosaic.
    One of the most important collections in the world.
    Also a moment of sadness for the 23 people killed during a terrorist attack in this Museum in 2015.
    We, as traveling archaeologist, ;) had seen a lot of these mosaics, but some of the ones on display were unbelievable beautiful detailed and big!
    We left the -a bit of a maze- Museum around 14.00.
    Popped in a local sandwichebar and had a lunch. Decided to try and walk back to the hotel, 4km.
    But as the sun was high in the sky and burning in our neck.. a taxi was the rescue.
    Back in the hotel we enjoyed the cooling fan of the AC and dozed away for a time.
    Got up to have a walk and a small bite.
    Bed was waiting, as for today..
    We're going to beard the lion in its den..

    Tunis Bardo Museum

    May 19, 2018 in Tunisia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Hello a bit of catching up to do, so like I said the plan was Carthage and Sidi Bou Siad but in the end we were convinced by our taxi driver to go to the Bardo museum in Tunis, this did mean we got to see a bit of the capital and I am pleased we went the museum is apparently the second largest in Africa after Cairo and the mosaics were impressive though we couldn’t find an answer to the question that was puzzling us which is how on earth did they lift and move them? Anyway here are just 6 photos of the many I took at the museum of the mosaics and also the rooms themselves as if I remember correctly the museum is housed in a palace.Read more
