Kairouan, Tunisia

Kairouan, Tunisia

Kairouan during the last shopping hours of the day can be quite attractive. New colours appear, lights are sometimes coloured and shadows dramatic.
Old places like the shopping streets of Kairouan have been designed much to serve the needs of its inhabitants in the late afternoon and evening hours, that is the time when temperatures fall to a pleasant level. It is clear that the use of lights are quite deliberate to make surroundings attractive.
