Photographer's Note

This is a door of Sidi Bou Said . It's a traditional door of Tunisia and it has also a detail very common in this country: it has two handles, one for men, one for women and another one for the children (if I'm not wrong men knock on the right and women on the left and of course children knock on the lower one). It's a way to know who's at the door. It's very common in Tunisia and it's curious because we can still find this detail also in the South of Portugal, with no doubt an heritage of the Arab occupation.
