I travelled a lot in Eastern Europe. If you were caught taking a photo there you should say goodbye to your friends and family for an indefinite period and there were warnings everywhere.Someone in my family is military and they are requested to not upload uniformed pictures to social media. But when they are at public event there’s no restriction to take pictures, nor to government buildings. I found it weird cause have never seen that advertise to other countries. For example Morocco, they do not advertise it.
No, I didn't want the troops.....literally just the tanks...I thought my boys would like it, so I pointed at the tanks, pointed at my camera and just said "Yes, no?" ....they said no....which was fine. But the building, I didn't know what it was...I must have been at the back of it....it just looked like a big, fancy home.Not weird really it’s the same in most countries. Troops can become target if identities known. Photographing it raises suspicion.
Funny isn't it, I mean in Tunisia, you can't take a photo of a tank....but police and military post pics in uniform all over social media....we even have one in the gallery.Someone in my family is military and they are requested to not upload uniformed pictures to social media.
I got a bollocking for that at Stansted Airport!Also.even here in.the uk it states in many goverment buildings no photos too.
And why would anyone have a door to a room called Mango Chutney?No, I didn't want the troops.....literally just the tanks...I thought my boys would like it, so I pointed at the tanks, pointed at my camera and just said "Yes, no?" ....they said no....which was fine. But the building, I didn't know what it was...I must have been at the back of it....it just looked like a big, fancy home.
I do understand it's security....that's why they carry no ID cards.

I have a photo in Hammamet of me posing with two/three coppers outside Hammamet medina....so they were happy to pose for pics in uniform with tourists....but no pics of a tank with no face, no number....it seems a bit odd really
I can understand the building, as somebody could plan an attack based on knowledge of the layout....but a tank? I don't get it
I got a bollocking for that at Stansted Airport!
There was a plain white door with my name on it....so I posed underneath my name for a pic....oops!
We got told off...had a sign pretty far away from us pointed out that said no pics....and told to delete the pic
I kept it anyway.....it's just a freakin door with my name on it
@tutusandfrogs Tiger here. There are many things that is not easy to see and figure out when it comes to how beznes works. And spesial for us who comes from western countries. You must first of all understand the culture in Tunisia. A genuine tunisian man will never start any relation online. That is not a maybe. That is a fact. The guys who start a relation via Internett and even serch for western women this way do it for one reason and one reason only. Visa and benefits. Dont be foold he have not Ask for money. They learn. But i also guess he have not tell you he is ready to pay for your traveling expences and a hoteroom for you? A genuin tunisian man would never ask you to come visit him Like this he show you no respect. And it is a total no go in his culture. You are from US? That is the new target to get the dream come true for them. They have target europe for many years. But they have big problem getting a visa approve here even they are married So the ultimate dream is the green card. When he ask you to come that is the first step on the long goal. Dont fall for it. In reality you have no clue what you get yourself involve in here. If you want yourself in a bad situation and want to get finance problem. Go ahead. But if you have any common sense you end this impossible dream now. You see the world true your western eyes! Forget that! It does not work that way there. You talk about not so big age gap? Yes in our countries. But there it is not accepted. Stop dreaming girl. Wake up! To use the words from a song .... you are on the highway to hell if you are stupid enought to go to Tunisia. It is no fairytale there. Put a higher price on yourself girl. Dont be any mans cash cow
Spot on!!! I felt like I was walking through a garbage dump most of the time.....even on that “lovely resort” Djerba....what a dump!They sure do

Be sure to wear an Abaya and hijab for sunbathing and swimming....unless you wish to be judged a Western woman of loose morals.
And for God's sake....don't dare walk a street or two away from the plastic tourist streets.....real life awaits:

Isn't it divine!! That's the stuff they don't show in tourist brochures, nor on ratty FB accounts.
Please do read the first three posts of this thread....so you are not fooled as I was:
Oh....my rat claimed he was not religious....he gifted me a family copy of the Qu'ran shortly before I left him
Im glad you're back too. You really open my eyes to a lot Judith. You were the first one to help me with my rat, then the other ladies. Now I feel empowered and ready to shut bezness down.It’s nice to be “home”! Thanks!
Thank you! I do agree.....evil never wins! They think they are the winners everytime new Nikes arrive, a wire transfer arrives, an all expense paid vacation to some resort in Hammamet, Djerba, or Sousse comes their way, but they always blow the money instantly, the shoes wear out, and when the trip is over....it’s back to 3rd world poverty again and a boring life hanging in coffee shops, fishing for their next victims.....always plural...they keep many online just to see who will take the bait! Horrible, vicious, evil, cruel bunch of people! We just have to keep speaking up and speaking out on the huge accepted crime of bezness in Tunisia! Continued best wishes to you in your recovery! They are real masters at mind control, brainwashing, lying nonstop and cheating nonstop! In their pea sized brains, they think all western women are just sex starved loose, immoral women! They truly see it as a business transaction....their lousy sex in exchange for cash, goods, and hopefully a visa. Monsters!Im glad you're back too. You really open my eyes to a lot Judith. You were the first one to help me with my rat, then the other ladies. Now I feel empowered and ready to shut bezness down.
Please know, evil never wins. Somebody pays for that, and it sure isnt the good guys
There’s a building in Tunis, like the USA CIA, which Abdelhak told me they shot a woman for taking a pic of that building. He said security people from that building came out, grabbed her body, and that was the end of her. Now I can’t prove that story, but apparently it happened in 2014.There is huge signs outside of all goverment buildings in tunisia that states no photos is allowed.
Also.even here in.the uk it states in many goverment buildings no photos too.
Im obviously not military etc but i wouldnt just want random people taking my picture without permission
Good for you. That was the hardest thing for me, going with my gut instincts. The guilt was wearing me out. I had to pray, I had to realize that in my years, my instincts have never failed me. Our body has a natural radar and it knows when something is wrong. And no matter how much you attempt to suppress it, that instinct will reject anything that has invaded your space and is toxic to your life.I'm going to repost his photo and go with my gut.
Spot on....fabulous advice!!!Good for you. That was the hardest thing for me, going with my gut instincts. The guilt was wearing me out.

Keep listening to it. Take care of yourself.
Im tunisian but im not rat for sure ahahha he seems so good but u can test him thoWe started chatting on Facebook after being friends for some time...a year? It recently started turning more romantically charged. I'm older, but by less than 10 years I will say. I am in my 30s, not looking for love. I live in North America. He works for Leoni, a wire manufacturer for European car companies. He says hes content with life. Never asked me for money, or to move etc. We talk about all kinds of things but none of the typical stuff I've seen posted. I don't want to say anything bad about him because I don't know him. I found this site when I was curious of flight costs. I'm not struggling financially, quite the opposite but he doesn't know my financial business. I'm not deluded, but was shocked to find this as a business. I would still take a trip down there but because the beaches look lush.
Hahaha well for me a rat who ask the to send him money even if she is his girlfriend or something more or when they both go out like the lady pays for everything because he should be the men and he should be classic and pays also a rat is the suspecious one ( there is no smoke without fire) and he don't find the time to text you always because he i probably busy with meeting or talking to other girls the rat is the one who don't give attention to his women and don't addicate his time for her and for her will the normal tunisian will do the opposite ofc and the rat is the one who want to get married and have kids as soon as possible even if he don't know his girlfriend for an enough period that means he just want to go from tunisia and have papers ( or he is old and he want to get married as soon as possible) and yes the rat is the one who talks with 100 women despite he have a girlfriend or wife and the rat is the one who ask for clothes or money or phones because for me a real men should have his digitnity
