From The Countryside
|Soug is-Sibit is a small farming village in northwestern Libya (maps in Arabic or English), and one of four villages known collectively as an-Nawahi al-Arba'a (the four sides) and located south of Tripoli. Soug is-Sibit, which means Saturday Market, is close to al-Aziziya, site of the world's highest recorded temperature (136 °F or about 58 °C, in the shade, recorded in Sept. 1922.) However, many of the villages are blessed with good water and fertile soil.|
|Riders dressed up in full
Libyan regalia and heading to glory on their Arabians and
Barbs! The ornate saddles are made of fine leather and
textiles, including silk and silver-thread. Special gear
for special occasions. The tradition of horseback riding
runs quite deep in Libyan culture, and on the Libyan
countryside, the mere sight of a well-dressed horse can
lead to great poetry and songs!
