Matmata, Tunisia: is a small Berber speaking town in southern Tunisia where some of the 2000 residents live in traditional underground “troglodyte” structures. The movie Stars Wars was filmed on location there. I took a bus excursion from Monastir during a February stay in 1991. Our tour bus of all Germans except for me, pulled into the town in early afternoon sun. Camel rides were an option but I chose my feet to enjoy sights added to my “most unusual things I've seen” list.
