  1. Well maybe not all Tunisians are optimistic, but relatively speaking, I think they’re more optimistic than many other people. In the Middle East for example, you find most of the people less optimistic concerning certain issues, due to the critical political situation in the region.
    Anyway, let’s just hope Arabs will always have hope and remain optimistic no matter what.
