On previous trips to #Tunisia, we would drive along 770 km of #Mediterranean coastal roads from #Tripoli to #Tunis. We would make frequent stops along the way, sampling the specialties of each city. The southern city of #Kairouan is the center of #makroud production, and many vendors have stalls along the road to tempt you to stop, which we ultimately did every time no matter how hard we resisted! Unfortunately driving through #Libya is extremely risky these days, so
 we ended up flying directly to Tunis this time. Luckily we found a small group of 
makroud shops in the #Medina, making makroud fresh on-site, and they were selling like hot cakes-literally!
