The people of the country were not doing so well in spite of the countrys vast natural resources, although some satellite dishes had been allowed, more contact with the outside world was happening and it was clearly a time of mild transition.The treasures of the country with its ancient Roman, Greek and Berber ruins and its fascinating history along with the personal quest and a few wrong turns along the way all contributed to the adventure, emotions and self-discovery.
