Is there any of you who visited Tatouine in Tunis, the place where SW was shot?

I'd love to, but the closest I ever got to Tunisia was Rome, Italy over a decade ago. I live closer to Yuma, Arizona (ROJ Tatooine) or Redwood City (Endor moon), being a California resident (no jokes, please). :rolleyes:

But I can visit the Hamburger Hamlet where Lucas saw the long lines for SW back in '77 by simply driving for an hour west! Okay, 7 hours... :p

No, but I too would love to see it. Is it true that part of the Lars homestead set remains at the site (thought I had read that somewhere)? Getting some pics or home video with that backdrop would be a dream come true.

Okay, 7 hours... :pI briefly lived in Phoenix 10 years ago, and other than that have lived in LA all my life. When Ep 1 came out, I sat in that very Hamburger Hamlet watching the lines (BTW, wasn't it Lucas sitting there with Spielberg?) with a small sense of history. Unlike BCJ though, it's only about 3 miles down the road from me, I could walk there, see a movie, have lunch, and walk back in that 7 hours. :D

No, but I've been in Tetuan, Morocco, which is in the (North African) neighborhood.

It would be great to see the film location site first hand, tho!
