Sounds of Tunisia


Call to prayer

Dogs barking

Traffic horns commanding cars at intersections

Click of shoes on cobblestone streets

Coffee houses, hookahs, men’s idle talk

Women murmuring with arms entwined

Call to prayer

Policemen's whistles

Cell phones ringing

Ocean and desert winds

The buzz of tour buses arriving

Construction machines groaning, cranes clanking
Call to prayer

Mediterranean Sea banging against stone walls and beaches

"Madame, Madame" shopkeepers cry

Steps on marble floors

Languages in surround sound

Call to prayer

Motorcyles

Arab music

Lightning, thunder, storm winds

Call to prayer
