Domesticated animals

Tunisia, Kairouan

This is a very special card.  My father-in-law sent it from his very first and only trip abroad sometimes in the 80s. He was retired and wanted to see something different so he and his friend Veikko decided to travel to Tunisia. They were both over 70 years of age. 

He wrote:
"Summerly beautiful and warm country, a peaceful retreat. We are very pleased with our holiday.  The sun shines from a cloudless sky.
 Best wishes Vaari (Grandpa)"

Sousse, Tunisia 20.10.1999
From us to our son. 

"Greetings from Sousse!
Unfortunately we couldn't attend the camel trip because we got a nasty bacteria from hotel's breakfast.  Instead we stayed at the hotel and wrote postcards.  Luckily our friends brought us a small bag of Sahara sand.
Take care!
Mom and Dad"

This is my entry for Maria's "Postcards for the Weekend" on her "Connections to the World-blog" and the theme for this week is Domesticated animals. 

What to do with old  baby food jars?
One is now full of Sahara sand :) :)

  1. What a great story! I love the Sahara sand in a jar too :-)

    Great take on domesticated animals!

  2. Oh my! Thank you so much for sharing such sentimental postcards !

  3. What great cards and stories - sorry you missed the camel trip but at least you have a permanent reminder of your holiday.

  4. I was in the south of Morocco last weekend, and I could see some camels in person. It's nice that you posted about them. Like bees, people usually don't think of them as domesticated animals (well, they do here, in Morocco). How many diferent animals are we looking at this week!
