North Africa from the air.


Everything looks perfect from far away.


People live here - lots of people. See the satellite dishes?


Random Roman Ruins


Wander through markets in a quest for shoes. That's Natasha on the left!


Green Square. (Think Red Square.)


One of my flip-flops broke as we walked around, so I bought these "handmade traditional" shoes with curled up toes!

These pictures look amazing. I know I always say stuff like that but it's true! Today is a Friday and all I can do is stare into these pictures like a daydreaming teenage girl.

now i have to be the third person to comment on your shoes/feet. WHOO HEE! it's almost enough to inspire a girl to be a (girl's feet) foot fetishist. a toe ring would do it i think.

I'd love to go to Doha.. I see myself going to Muscat first. Something tells me ALL these GCC nations are VASTLY nicer than Libya, even if Libya does have the Mediterranean going for it.

It seems such a contradiction to see so much water and so much dried-up land in juxtaposition.

Oh yeah, you're Miss Africa! I've seen a whole three African countries now (Kenya, Morocco, and now Libya). I'm dying to see more.

Sure!! We were thinking of doing something at home instead of out (just got on here to let you know!) but we could start there and stagger walk soberly over here. What say you?

Don is talking about making Nitin-friendly Baileys...!

Re: amazing

Just stumbled upon your LJ, and these pics struck my attention. I just returned from Libya, and had a great time over there. Who needs alcohol if you've got sweet tea and a waterpipe?
Eventhough I've taken loads of pictures myself, your images bring back memories :P
