TS Update-(May Day Security)

Greetings Expats,

So much going on in Tunis on May 1st so let’s review the security situation.  People often ask me “so how are things in Tunis?”.  Before responding I always take a second to assess the person asking the question so that I can select the version of things I think the person cares about.  

As a security professionals I speak with a wide spectrum of people all with a different take on “how things are going“.  In the end it comes down to a balance between caution & exploration.
