Why? Well, as this (part of a larger) draw from yesterday highlights, this adventure in Tunisia has been, in very many ways a break, a temporary escape, a time to take a deep breath and step away for a bit from many things. And now that time is fast ending - I shall be on a plane before the end of the week - and all of those things are rapidly popping up again, in my face, clamoring to be dealt with.
A lot of things to be dealt with, and I don't exactly feel as well-rested and recuperated and ready to take them on as one might expect...
But so it goes, I suppose. That nice comfortable safe room, the lie-down on the blanket, separated from the real world...it only lasts so long. Eventually you have to go back, get into the regular swing of things again.
In the meantime, I'm also trying to make the best of my remaining time here. Had a lovely day trip to the North-East on Saturday, visited some amazing roman ruins, had dinner with my teacher's family. Monday night I attended (and marched in, for a bit!) a Women's Day women's rights demonstration which was... a really worthwhile experience.
So yeah, hopefully back to more regular updating once things settle down a bit.
