Where is this? - # 8

Another picture for the 'Where is this?' challenge. If you think you know where it is (or you want to guess) click on comments.

The pictures for the game 'Where is this?' have all been taken from someplace in Libya and are in an area open to the public. The prize for the winner will be the satisfaction of knowing that you had the right answer! - I'll let you know who the winner is.


Dania2004 guessed it first when she commented: 'shat el hensheer area in treeg al shat', so congratulations dania2004!

Later in the day Trabilisia said: 'near the sea -side just after Libyana and Bu- sitta areas'. But Dania2004 answered correctly before Trabilisia so she gets the credit for having the correct answer first.

The picture is of a shop that specializes in selling lighting for decorative purposes. I'm not sure why anyone would want a glowing palm tree, but there are some people who must really love them because I see them around. I kind of like little twinkly lights in the trees sometimes, especially if you are sitting outside under them at night, but only white, not coloured bulbs for me. (I guess I'm a little on the boring side). I really hate it when they do up all the lights at weddings. I think it cheapens the atmosphere, but to each his/her own.

This one was way too easy. I will have to make it more difficult next time.

  6. Teri,
    I just started reading your blog--it's a fun one!! It's interesting for me since I'm also in a multi-racial relationship. I was curious as to why you converted and not your partner?[not to offend anyone, but was merely wondering because I would always think, why should I convert and not my partner?]and also don't you want your kids to have an exposure to your culture as well? When I have kids, I would want them to be equally aware and exposed to both cultures and not just one.

  7. I think Elvis is probably more fun to listen to than Khadafi!

  8. Hey ! Elvis has left the building a long time ago .
