Thanks to our friend Karthago news, I’ve been extremly happy reading those Americain studying arabic in Bourguiba school.
A fist of enthousiatic students getting arabic courses in Bourguiba school are spreading their unique view through their some kind of volatile blogs (created for the occasion), really nice designs, a butch of photos and a text with many interrogations inside.
Those bloggers are posting everything around, as it seems strange and new for them : from their biggest joy to the worst dramatic events, I’ve appreciated their appetite for discovery, like babies, they are tryring to touch and taste everything around, and for our great pleasure they are reporting honestly their most intimating facts in those blogs, I’ve qutote this Lea’s excerpt :
Tunisia is a clear mix of Arab and French influences. Most people can speak fluent French with you, and the boulangerie is an omnipresent institution. The country is a true cultural mixing pot. Basically any style of clothing you might see people wearing in America, Europe, or anywhere the Middle East, you’ll see people wearing here.
I’m really fascinated by their fast abililty to analyse our little Tunis, their toutghts are far from those that we use to read about, when americain talks about Tunisia as desert panorama with tents and camels …
I’m sure that I’ve met them in Pino’s bakery, without smelling any blogging signs, I wish if they would come with us in the next Kelibia meetup it would be great and we’ll enlarge our local event to a wider area.
