"THE HOUSE OF FATIMA We visited..." Tunisia Things to Do Tip by chrissyalex

Tunisia Things to Do: 757 reviews and 1,154 photos


THE HOUSE OF FATIMA We visited this pitdwelling home,where its owner Fatima still actually resides. She is very famous and has been featured in many international magazines and newspapers. In one of the rooms of the house,these magazine covers were on display. As I looked at these pictures,I could tell from the clothing of the other people in the photos that they were taken long ago,but Fatima looked exactly the same! As I thought this, the tour guide came up to me and said that many people have asked him 'How old is Fatima?' I laughed because I was thinking this exact thing! He told me ' When I first met her 5 or 6 years ago, she told me she was around 70 now she says she is around 71!'
