TS Update-(Good Training)

Good job on all the Expats out there who pulled together and made the necessary adjustments to continue their normal colorful lives while at the same time acknowledging the serious security situation we have before us.  Although the  grand Friday did not materialized, at least we were able to benefit from the experience of goingContinue reading “TS Update-(Good Training)”

TS Update-(June 15 Progress)

Lots of positive developments have taken place that may lead to a better than expected Friday.  The key decision on the part of the Tunisian government to expressively ban marches that were scheduled to take place today is a big positive step forward in terms of minimizing any risk of possible violence throughout the country.Continue reading “TS Update-(June 15 Progress)”

TS Update-(International Security Advisory)

Since several embassies have updated their travel advisories, we felt it would be a good time to share an “International Tunisia Security Advisory Summary” for the entire Expat Community. US-Embassy Advisory Highlights (last update on 17 Apr 2012):    Travelers contemplating trips to the interior of the country should assess local conditions and routes whenContinue reading “TS Update-(International Security Advisory)”

TS Update-(Bourgiba Ave-Update)

Our last post focused on the April 9th protest on Avenue Bourgiba and the negative actions that took place that day. We pointed out that the  issue would remain a central point of dispute between “secularist” and the current government.  It’s interesting to note that not only has the current government reversed the ban butContinue reading “TS Update-(Bourgiba Ave-Update)”
