This proved to be excellent advice as we had a great night out in the old city and crossed the river to the local market with all its colour and character. We saw the modern Dubai from the taxi on the way to the airport - or as much of it as we needed to see.
At Tunis the next day we were greeted by Ali, our local guide and Tijani, our driver. We spent 11 days in Tunisia - two words describe the main features of Tunisia, Roman ruins and olive trees. Two other words, Bardo and change could be added. What an incredible history.

I was dreading the cramped journey home. Not so. We travelled in an Emirates A380 plane and although we were travelling ordinary class - the legroom was excellent, as was the service.
