Christmas Cruise - Sidi Bou Said

After we we left Bardo Museum we headed for the tourist town of Sidi Bou Said. The town, as you can guess from the pictures, is known for the blue and white colors of its buildings and structures. The tour guide told us that the white is keep the houses cool and the blue is to protect from mosquitoes because they think it's water. One can cruise the steep streets of the downtown and buy all sorts of local crafts and such. We bought a plate from one of the vendors and stopped at another because he took our picture. The other place we went was to go to the bathroom and have a quick soda before going to back to the tour bus.
