  1. Very interesting that Kairouan isn’t lit up since they are known for their carpets, although those are supposed to be hand made, so perhaps that doesn’t count as a factory?

    I’m not sure what the map counts as factories, but the north has a lot of olive oil production and wine production, as well as some pottery places. The southern part of the country is more industrial and has mines for phosphorus (pretty sure it’s phosphorus, could be something else).

    Sfax’s position should be noted here, as it is the 2nd largest city in the country, it is mostly working class people since it has no large tourist draw. It is also the place where massive protests occurred on the Thursday of the main week of protests (when Ben Ali fled on Friday during the general strike and mass protests in Tunis).
