At night
Tunis, Tunisia

It's amazing what the correct use of lights can do. At night even North Africa's ugliest hotel, the Africa, looks nice.

Some hours after sunset Tunis becomes a very tranquil city. It is not like people rushing home, and streets becoming empty. Because there still are many people around.
But the noise disappears, and people sit down on benches and on doorsteps and rest after a day under the sun.
