    Quite an interesting place you found here in Tunisia. I too am always impressed at what the Romans were able to build - and much of it has survived for 2000 years!

    Interesting tip; about having to purchase a ticket to bring your camera inside the colliseum. Who'd have guessed? Looks like an interesting place to visit (Tunisia in general).
