I’m with Alfies Mum on this.
We holidayed in Tunisia (late October 2010) at Sidi Salam in Bizerte. One day we drove south towards the edge of the Sahara desert and came across a little oasis village called Cho wadi wadi. In the evening we found a heavenly restaurant called Trocadero in the market place just three steps up from the main street where a sweet little girl was playing a game similar to hopscotch. We were seated on the outside terrace to dine under the moon; it was lovely; so peaceful, I could hear the footsteps of the pretty little angel I’d seen earlier. We ordered the Ojja that was advertised outside and relaxed until our meals arrived. It was at this point that the owners put the music player on, (now I don’t mind a little sweet music playing in the background but this was, A; Rock & Roll and B; Loud enough to have a dancing party!) we complained and within a heartbeat the waiter turned it off saying that the CD player had a problem that happened only once a blue moon so not to worry about it and continue with our meal.
I remember then asking for the cruet, the waiter seemed a little confused, but when it came I was disgusted to see it had a little bit of soap on it (left over from a previous attempt at cleaning, no doubt!) This was the final straw and we too, walked out without eating or paying.
The lack of cruet hygiene in Tunisia was possibly one of the factors in the uprising 2 months after our visit. Will our political leaders ever learn, now that David Cameron seems to have put the bomp on the proposed new legislation?
I wonder when!.
You couldn't make it up!
