Djemila, Algeria

I think ive complained more than enough about work overload, so ill just skip it...and again a big notice to whomever has sent me a postcard...due to how things have been, and still are, im somewhat stuck in getting back to all of you upon receiving your cards, so i hope you understand if i take time with it, or if you had seen your card here already and havent been informed about my receiving it..im really sorry for all this, but life really gets in the way sometimes, and at this point I have around 15 notifications left to send :((  im awful....hope you wont regret having traded with me :((


Well, after going crazy of worries due to mr. Postman avoiding me, and thinking how my cards have been lost...finally some have come...and among them was my first ever card from Algeria...yippieee!! New Country!! Number.....duh, have no idea...im totally not on track with that...but hehehee, new country!!!
And apart from being a new country, its as well a UNESCO site!

Djemila is a mountain village in Algeria near the northern coast east of Algiers where some of the best preserved Berbero-Roman ruins in North Africa are found. It was recognized as a UNESCO whs because of its unique adaptation of Roman architecture to a mountain environment. Buildings present in Djemila include a theatre, two fora, temples, basilicas, arches, streets, and houses.
These Roman ruins date back from the 3rd centruy....

Djemila in Arabic means 'beautiful'

With Djemila, Algeria is a strong contender of having the greatest Roman ruins of North Africa. While the ruin area in itself is not one of the largest, it is often well preserved, and the adjoining museum, is virtually packed with excellent mosaics,- mosaics that so often else have been transported to national museums far away. Altogether, Djemila stands out as one of the best preserved Roman ruins of North Africa.
