So, Tunisia has a lot of cats. Mostly angry looking cats that are waiting for the humans to return to the true religion of worshipping them. It is ridiculous. The cats are everywhere. Not many dogs, but thousands of cats. Here is some of my documentation of the cats around Tunisia.


A friend of mine in Tunisia loaned me James P. Spradley’s Participant Observation. It is a fabulous book about writing ethnographies. Pretty much it is cultural anthropology and how to watch, learn, and actively take part in life as you learn to maneuver a new culture. I highly recommend it for people diving into new cultures and places. It makes mundane daily things (riding the train, walking down the street, going to the market) a learning experience. You should check it out!30409027
