Tripoli, 11 April 2014:
Today is the last day of Tripoli International Fair, the last chance to explore its local and international shops and pavilions, all for just a quarter of a dinar.
Visitors can experience traditional Libyan hospitality, supping foamy green tea with mint or red tea with nuts in the Ministry of Tourism pavilion. There are also chances to see how traditional mural paints used in Ghadames are made, or buy colourful homemade Amazigh gifts.
Don’t miss the tiny Jalu date stall, right at the back of the fair, which has been designed like a cave and decked out with palm fronds.
You can find out more about the county’s security forces or voter registration at Ministry of Local Governance stalls, or enter competitions to win free flights with state-owned airlines in the Ministry of Transport pavilion.
There are also plenty of shopping opportunities, from Indian clothing to electrical goods, and from toys to local produce, including Libyan honey. [/restrict]
