Item description - Letter from Tunis Dated June 26, 2000

Date of release - Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Name - Felicity Fenton

Reason for release -

I received this letter from a man I met while traveling solo in Tunis. I was 23 at the time, naive and raw to the world, and he followed me for an entire afternoon until I finally agreed to have tea with him. I spent the next few days hanging out with him and his friends in tea shops. He taught me how to play backgammon, gave me a tour of the city, and cooked me spicy vegetarian couscous. We spoke in broken French, and I learned he was from Morocco visiting his best friend because his parents had suddenly died just weeks before. When he told me this, he sobbed. When I left Tunis, I promised I would write him. Six months later, when I received his letter, I wrote him immediately, but then never wrote to him again.

Method of release - SRS traveled to the southernmost point in the United States to release this letter into sweeping winds.
