Reasons for trip

The Belvedere is on the edge of Tozeur and is mentioned in the guide books as it has good views.

We were dropped off here to admire the views and have lunch while our driver went to the mosque.

This was a BIG mistake as it is a dump. Naff faces painted white are carved in the rocks as a tourist attraction. It might work at Mount Rushmore but it doesn’t here. There are big models of an eagle, lute, violin and drum. There is a kids' play area with swings, bouncy castle, slides and a roundabout. Music was blaring out but the fast food stall didn’t seem to be doing much trade. Neither did the horses and camels.

We were the only Europeans there, everyone else was Tunisian. We climbed the steps up to viewpoint on rocks which overlooked the golf club and big hotels of tourist zone – some view.

Although there were plenty of seats there was no shade. There was litter everywhere. This was the only place in Tunisia where Michael didn't take any pictures.

It seemed a very long wait for our driver to pick us up…
