In my mind I am readying myself for my next holiday and I find myself thinking of my last. This is one of the few landscapes I took whilst in Tunisia last year. This beach looks over to Hammamet and the Villa that formally belonged to the Ben Ali's. A few hours after taking this I was on the plane home, and since returning I have reflected numerous times on the fate that awaits this country. To the right of the sun you can see the rain streaming down to the sea - spots of rain were hitting me as I composed this (and despite my attempt to clean the image up, there may be some signs of this left). A storm passing seems an appropriate metaphor for this country - but will another storm come? The bright sun offers hope, but the detritus on the beach reminds me of all that still needs to be washed clean.
I wonder what I'll find to tell from my next holiday...
PS. Sorry I haven't been around much. I have a deadline for a review of my studies looming and its taking a lot of my time.
