Selma Mohammed (Airbnb)
Seif, Selma, Imen Mohammed and their lovely daughter turned out to be the highlight of my trip.. their link is here: ((https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/182478178))
My trip to Tunis, Tunisia was not expected or planned out particularly well.. One evening In a crunch I sent out several messages on Airbnb. Concerned for my feet, head and belly in the coming night it was not looking too good..
Sure enough as I walk around the city center of Tunis with A new friend I receive my call from Seif. He asks me If I am alright and when he should be expecting me. In the following weeks I would experience this family, and their uniquely Arabic hospitality unlike anything that had yet to experience. His mother was particularly sweet and generous, she taught me several words/phrases in arabic and french (Being American.. and Extremely English, this was a great social experience. As well as a great opportunity to learn new language and traditions.
Located in Le Kram, with three open beds and a large common/living room It seems like these Tunisian Natives have been catering to the community for longer than I have been alive perhaps.
So now that I have met them and seen what they are about, I would recommend them to you as a friend and a host. If you are looking for a place to explore Tunis has a ice cross between African, Arabic, French and Italian cultures. I personally only got as far as Sousse, But I hope to go back and visit them again Seif has told me of an Uncle that lived closer to where they filmed Star Wars.
Selma and Seif also have family deeper into Tunisia.. Douz was also an option for travel/ touring. Seif told me several times that they regularly go to visit, and that it as rather spectacular!!Se;
