Great photos, all of them. Not just the star wars ones, although, those are pretty damn cool too! I'm guessing it's from the orginal star wars? It looks that old, but sun, wind and sand can do a lot of weathering and damage in no time. So, is it Mos Eisely??

What was sad was all the damned graffiti! What possesses humans to do that crap??

Thanks for sharing Sergiu. I've been to Carthage several years ago. This is a fantastic place full of history just in front of the Mediteranean sea. Mediteranean came from "Mare Nostrum" (our sea) in Latin/Roman. In the Antique era, the Roman Empire covered all the countries around the Mediteranean sea. Then at this time it was indeed "their sea".

Thanks guys! I talked with a Tunisian steward about their history and told him Romania was also conquered by Roman Empire.

Anyway the trip was extraordinary! It is the Ep.1 set indeed. Too bad some idiots vandalized the movie set by taking "souvenirs" or writing their idiotic names on the walls and it wasn't the local people because they are not really aware of the SW phenomenon...
