Place of the Day: Sidi Bou Said

Said what?   No, not that kind of "said".

I'm picking a Place of the Day to highlight today from somewhere that's on my list of places to visit down the road - not sure when it might be, but it's there nonetheless (maybe a stopover from Italy).

Tunisia has long been known for its European and Middle Eastern culture, weaving, rugs, tapestries, and otherwise rich history and scenic views. It has been conquered many times, and boasts a variety of traditions that date back centuries.  One of the notable things to see, though, is the charming collection of whitewashed stone houses that sit on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Tunis.  Its famous blue doors make the view unique!
