Sfax (Tunisia)

I'll post a photo or two for each city/town/etc I post from now on - It helps bring the city to life, giving the name a face. And shows you just where these places are and may give a feel as to what they may be like:

Arrgh I'm afraid I may've temporarily stalled this game, choosing an 'X' ending letter, especially as a number of you guys seem to prefer posting town, suburbs and what not from Australia.

In searching, there's apparently only one, yes, ONE, place in Australia which begins with 'X' and this is it:

Also referenced here:

redunderthebed in the Original Post wrote:Ok i post a city name and you have to post a city name starting with last letter of the last cities name.

...


But if you guys want 'to go alphabetical' that's all good, but if you 'want to change it back' that's all good too

lol I got caught with that too with my Bathurst.
