We have stopped in Zuwara a Mediterranean coastal Berber-speaking city in Libya, with a hot semi-arid climate. Zuwara is famous for its beaches and seafood so we will take in the view and a good meal. It is situated 63 miles west of the capital Tripoli. Cereals, dates, and esparto grass (used to make cordage, shoes, and paper) are local products. During the 2011 Libyan Civil War, the city was reported to be under control of the local anti-Gaddafi forces, and lost by the government of Muammar Gaddafi. Following the fall of the Gaddafi government, Zuwara was the first city in Libya to democratically elect its local council.
We are almost there! Continue your walking explorations locally and prayer time as we make our way to Jerusalem by Easter!
