Echoes from the Tunisian blogosphere

The 7th Tunisian blogger meetup was held last Saturday. We met for a Ramadan dinner, then spent the evening together. We talked about everything; Ramadan, religion, blogging, new blogs, WiFi, the internet, personal stuff, …etc. As usual it was a lot of fun. The next Tunisian blogger meetup will be on November 18th.

Adib, the Tunisian veterenarian blogger, was a guest on the Tunisian radio to talk about the races of hunting dogs and especially the “Sloughi”, a race only available in Tunisia and the Maghreb region. (in French)

Drako writes about his decision to start discovering his country, Tunisia, and how he drove to Thuburbo Majus, a Punic-Roman city 60Km south of the capital Tunis.
He writes about it, it's history and the guide that claims he is the last Roman in Tunisia. He also took some really nice photos. (in French)

On the occasion of the World Day for the elimination of poverty, Zizou writes about how proud he is of the social development that has taken place in Tunisia over the past years, how poverty has been greatly reduced, and how rural areas have been developed.
He thinks this should be maintained by extending the 2626 National Solidarity Fund and transforming it into a National Human Development initiative. (in French)

Chikipi writes about attending a UNESCO ALECSO club media event at the Mederssa Chaabaniya, near el Hafsiya in downtown Tunis, that revolves around the topic of Multimedia and Youth. There was a presentation of the club's activities, work and future objectives. (in French)

Nejla has added a new section in her new women portal Nawarat called “They Blog”, in which she will be posting extracts from Tunisian blogs by female bloggers and linking back to them. (in French)

Karim writes about attending the World cup qualifier between Tunisia and Morocco and gives us a review from the stadium with a photo gallery of the event.

Houssein talks about how annoyed he gets by blog entries that end by the blogger asking “What do you think?”. He doesn't like the impression that he “must” answer and sees it more as an invitation to close the window and stop reading. (in French)

Chouchitou writes about the changes in the website of Tunisian daily newspaper “La Presse”, with more colours, more sections, new presentation and better archiving. (in French)
