I'm sick and we don't quite know why

I'm sick. Headache, bit of a sore throat, weak, fever / ultra night sweats, hot but feel cold, runs. Most likely to be heat related or from the plane, Alison helped lots by reading worst case sicknesses from guidebook, Hep A possible lets hope its not, also diptheria!
First guy not to swindle us yesterday. We all shared a sad moment when we told him we were leaving Sousse and he'd not secured return custom in his restaurant. But I'll try to help him, twas restaurant De Peuple on the medina wall by a small hotel behind the Ribat. Food ordinary but huge free side dishes and good price.
Yesterday Swindled once, escaped countless times as we improve! Today visited the Zaytouna Mosque, Tunis, not much to see but probably worth the 2 dinar entry, then got a wicked view from same place as last time but without 'guide', so good photos! An he was up there and Alison warned his marks that his prices are a fortune, go Alison!
So we won in the end.
Hotel is amazing by our standards if a little run down, Hotel Grand Paris near medina its got arches and tiles and its pretty clean and half price of Carlton.
Tonight port way and tomorrow Sidi Bou Said, maybe shopping or Bardot the day after and return home friday, suspect this be the last or nearly last blog so in summary Tunisia has some great sights but we've had some really bad experiences with, and lets be absolutely fair to them... hmmm, Alison says I ca't say that so I'll say theives, chancers, and scum.
Joe and Alison
