Thanks for the votes and kind comments on my last upload.

Whilst I'm on a people theme...

This is a chap runs a small tourist shop on the outskirts of Hammamet. The impression I got was that life was a constant struggle, he was excessively thin and seemed to wear the same clothing for our entire stay. The shop was on a busy highway route and the stock was always dusty - I didn't envy him his job.

In buying something from him he was keen to give me my change in UK currency - a consequence of Tunisia's closed economy. This was relatively common - several time we were stopped and asked if we could change UK currency for Tunisian Dena (apologies if this isn't the correct spelling).

Right - I better get back to work!

Like the clarity and mood here only niggle is the leather hanging down above his head is slightly off putting.

An excellent in situ portrait. Despite his hardship he looks like an amenable sort of chap. Good story.
