My friend Kit reads with a student in the local private high school for those who have failed at public schools. The teacher was teaching Wordsworth's poem about daffodils when we came in, although he pronounced it 'daffodiles.'
Public transportation in Tozeur

An oasis in Tozeur; they have to drill so deep to get the water that it's too hot to use initially, so they have huge cooling towers to pump it up and let it drain down, being cooled by the air. All oases in Tunisia are privately owned, and Tozeur has quite a few of them with about 250,000 date palms in cultivation.
Brick making, the hard way...
