Echoes from the Tunisian blogosphere

The most talked about topic in the Tunisian blogosphere this past week is obviously the Tunisian team's dissapointing performance at the World Cup in Germany after their draw with Saudi Arabia.

Some feedback in French from: Tunisian star, Adib, Anis, Nawarat, Assouma.

On a more serious note, Tarek writes about how Tunisia is aiming to largely cut down unemployment from now to 2016, and he throws in a number of suggestions like going further down the internationalization and privatisation path as well as reforming the university system and work laws. (FR)

As for Swifty, he asks what a country is? and what it is that creates an attachment between a person and a country, enough to make it part of his identity. Is it birth in a certain country, life in it at a certain stage of life or the people surrounding the person? (FR)

Felsfa writes about the morning greeting in Tunisian “Sbah El Khir”, which he explains as much more than just a simple “good morning”, it means may your morning be good in each and every way: moral, material, internal, external, news-wise, business-wise, …etc.
He goes on to state how people no longer bother to greet each other like that anymore in Tunisia these days, and how he thinks Tunisia is changing to the worse, starting from its mornings. (FR)

On the lighter side, Heliodore writes about his discovery of a Tunisian website TunisArts that offers downloads of Tunisian movies, series, theatre plays, music, and more. (FR)

And Zaratoustra publishes the program of this year's Tabarka music festivals, including the famous Tabarka Jazz Festival. (FR)

Adib, the Tunisian vet blogger, writes about “Operation Monique 2”, that is being held by his clinic in cooperation with Mme Monique Busain from June 17th to 23rd, to develop and preserve the species in the Kelibia region. (FR)
