I took this photo at the recently held International Travel and Tourism Show in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Yes, Tunisia was there, one of five Mediterranean countries: Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia (which could be classified African) along with Israel and Jordan. But more on the salon in another post.

Anyways the major news item for Tunisia is their innovative pilot program exempting tourists from China and India from acquiring a tourist visa. Here is the article entitled Tunisia: Chinese and Indian Tourists Exempted From Visas Of course I posted the link on the SCRAP SHORT TERM TOURIST VISAS TO GHANA Facebook Group page along with the following comment:

Innovation in Tunisia to be more competitive. now why can’t the conversation on incentives to a floundering Tourism in Ghana sector start? Our doctors and teachers are on strike.
