One of the best ways to get to know a culture is to wander around the city and observe. See what they eat, how they dress, what they do, and what they enjoy. My family went down near Martyrs’ Square yesterday afternoon to enjoy the local culture…the cotton candy, green tea with almonds, horse rides and…
Gathering the crowd
There performing in the garden & square was Libya’s own “Evil Knievel.” Revving the engine, popping wheelies, and saluting the bystanders, this young Libyan man was pleasing the local crowd. Cell phones were out taking video clips and recording the day. It was a lot of fun to watch this guy flying around… My son was very impressed!
For those who were not interested in the high-speed motorcycle…there was the horse and carriage ride around the garden. Sitting up like royalty, the families enjoyed a quiet afternoon ride.
I am sure there are other great things to explore and discover in Libya, one just needs to get out and visit the town. The only way to really understand a culture is to visit it…so why not come understand Libya!
