Photo of the Day: Pig crossing in Jendouba, Tunisia

Pigs aren’t exactly that welcome here in Tunisia. While pork products can be found in a few specialty shops in Tunis (and French grocery chain Carrefour), one has to look pretty hard to find anything porcine in the country. That is, except for the country’s significant population of wild boars. Throughout northwest Tunisia’s forests one can find large populations of these wild, yet delectable creatures.

The countryside between El Kef and Jendouba is marked by gently rolling plains spread out between beautiful pine forests. Perfect for spring time hiking. This picture was taken near Nabeur, Tunisia.
