Tunisia, Easter 2002

first issued 17/4/20021

 These are a few pictures from the album of our week's 'Desert Safari' round Tunisia over Easter, 2002. The selection is pretty random, and this isn't necessarily the final version.

If anyone else wants to post some pics I can link to them from here, or publish them on this page.

Finally, Sheila suffering bravely during our thirteen hour delay after a bird took a detour through one of the engines on take-off (this is between the free lunch and the free tea, dinner, and 'drink from the bar' - the bird didn't come out of it so well!)

And my favourite picture of the holiday -
