What I learnt on a day trip to Tripoli

Bull balls

Bull balls

– There are three hammams. Only one in use.

– The one in use can be rented out by women.

– Tripoli comes from ‘tri polis’.

– In the souq they sell the testicles of bulls.

– Maybe within a year there will be a museum in the old citadel.

- Mamluk basically means ‘slave of’.
