Closed Border (for now)

Gabes, Tunisia

Closed Border (for now) - Africa, Gabes, Libya, Tripoli, Tunisia, street, travel

From Gabes, Tunisia, in 2005, this sign marks the route eastward toward Tripoli, Libya. At the time, the tape across the distance meant that the border was closed. But as the extraordinary events of the past few weeks reshape the region, it’s only a matter of time before the tape can be taken off the sign.
