Footprints in the desert.
Another part of the ancient oasis, Ghadames.
Tripoli - one of the largest mosques, converted from a cathedral.
Inside an Orthodox church, Tripoli, where there is an icon of St George and the Dragon. There is a carving of the same subject on the red castle at Green Square. We also visited a Roman Catholic Franciscan church.
Star of David on the front of a house in Tripoli's old town - we were told that this house previously belonged to a Jewish family. After the 1967 war between Israel and neighbouring countries, many Jews were forced to leave cities along the southern Mediterranean where they had lived for hundreds of years. We were told that none remained in Libya. However, we were shown a small synagogue (not in Tripoli) which was protected by local people who remembered their Jewish neighbours and considered it part of their local heritage.
Sports shop in Tripoli's old town - my son (then 13) was invited to play football wherever we went. In Tripoli he played at a football club near the centre of town.
Another view of Leptis Magna's theatre, looking north over the Mediterranean. Libya is not so far from Italy and the relationship goes back a long way.
