Photographer's Note

I guess this is one of the most photographed places in Tunisia. It's the famous Café des Nattes, in Sidi Bou Said.
Sidi Bou Said is a small town, situated near Tunis, which is very famous for its architecture and blue and white colours.In the 20th century it was a very popular residence of famous artists who used to come here. Today, if we take some free time to discover the little streets, we'll have the chance to find many art galleries. The place is still quite connected to culture and arts.Seems this café used to be very popular (and it is still today) by the artists. Lots of famous national and foreigner artists have been here. The decoration inside is very traditional, with cushions where you can sit and have a "thé à la menthe".
I don't know how I had the chance to take this photo without a hundred tourists in front. This place is one of the most visited and there are always too many people in front. But the moment I took the photo there was only one national who was calmly reading the newspaper in the shade.
