Travelogue: 14 April 2001 - 21 April 2001

Day 6: Thursday, 19 April 2001
Douz - Chott El Jerid - Touzeur

After a good night sleep we go to the Douz animal market. Camels, goats, donkeys and sheep are traded here. I also have time to pop in to the internet cafe to check my mail.

Later that morning we drive to Tozeur. To get there we have to cross the big salt plane called Chott El Jerid. This region used to be linked to the Mediterranean a long time ago. But now it is a flat plane with lots of sand mixed with salt.

Later that day we arrive in Tozeur. Nothing much to do except sitting by the pool and exploring the town.
