1973 juillet/July, mon voyage à Tunisie – cinq semaines dans le Club Mediterranée. Korba. My 5 weeks vacation in Tunisia. Where I met Hedi Ben Sassi, l’Arabe. C’était la plus grand amour de ma vie. While in Korba Club Med, I metan Arab and fell in love, and he with me. Comme j’avais habitee en Hollande, Hedi m’a suivi, et fait le long voyage de Tunis via Tanger, Europe aux Pais Bas. J’avais quitté les Pays Bas en 1974 et suis allée au Genève, La Suisse. Mes derniers lettres de Hedi etaient en 1975, comme j’ étais déjà dans les Etats Unis. These are images of THEN 1973: –

Many, many years later – in fact it has been March 2012 – I went back to Tunisia. For one month. Went to Tunis by bus, trying to look for the last address of Hedi. Malheureusement, c’etait seulement l’annee 2012 que je suis rentree en Tunisie, mais je ne l’ai pas re-trouvé. Triste histoire d’amour.

2012, one month Les Orangers Beach Resort, Golfe of Hammamet, situated along the strip by the ocean between Hammamet North and Yasmin South.

Hammamet (Arabic: الحمامات‎ El-Ḥammāmāt) is a town in Tunisia. Due to its beaches it is a popular destination for swimming and water sports. It was the first tourist destination in Tunisia. It is located in the south east of the northern peninsula of Cap Bon in the Governorate of Nabeul, on the northern edge of the Gulf of Hammamet. {Wikipedia]. Les Orangers has at least four restaurants, bar, cafe to choose from. Two large swimming pools, one indoor heated. Including return flight from/to Frankfurt DEU, and emergency medical insurance, total I paid for one month for a double room/single occupancy (no extra), sea view and all inclusive food, drinks, bottled water, wine, cocktails, champagne, and entertainment was €1.046 (about $1,300). The month of March weather had been quite cool.
