An out-of-season jaunt around the Mediterranean with Johnny Morris 5: The Kerkennas and Jerba, Tunisia
The little-known islands of Kerkenna are so far hardly touched by the modern world. Life there is mainly concerned with fishing, octopus, esparto grass and donkeys. A hundred miles to the south is Jerba, where the holiday-maker is already a common sight. Johnny visits the market at Houmt Souk, the magnificent hotel complex, Dar Jerba, and the potteries at Guellala, and he takes a camel ride along the coast.
