Photographer's Note

Sidi Bou Said is a town in northern Tunisia, overlooking the Bay of Tunis.
It is located only 20 km from the capital of Tunisia, Tunis.
The town is situated on steep cliff. At the bottom of the cliff there is the Sidi Bou Said Marina where wealthy Tunisians keep their boats.
The town itself is a tourist attraction as it is known for the extensive use of blue and white colors all over the town. Sidi Bou Said retains traditional 18th century architecture.
This town is called a town of artists. Many famous artists lived there or visited Sidi Bou Said. Most famous is probably Paul Klee.
There are a lot of multi-colored bougainvilleas in this nice town where you can spend a good time.
