    Hi Roulla - I've been quite laid back about it until this week end and now feel frazzled. He hasn't been well for months but there seemed to be so many things that were wrong, all at the same time, he had a skin infection, ear infection, suspect stomach ulcer which now turns out to be a faulty...

    Tunisian - African or Arab?

    My husband becomes very upset if you suggest he's an arab. Like one of the previous posters he considers arabs to be from Egypt and the Gulf. He says he is Tunisia and Tunisians are the people of the Mahgreb although interestingly, he says that Tunisians from the south who are black, are...
