I've been trying to familiarize myself with the urban "geography" of Tripoli :). I sometime take a bus and go anywhere, I'd just get on and get off later when I feel it's an interesting location. That resulted in me getting lost a couple of times but that's ok, I'm still in Libya so I'd just ask and then I'll find my way again :).
Anyway, as a result of my wandering, I've come across a few interesting places, one of them is the CaCao Cafe, located in Gergarish -I think they call it BuNwas to be more precise-. It's a nice cafe, good service and atmosphere, has a nice view -overlooking the sea-. but it's a bit overpriced. Well to be fair I only tried the more "exotic" beverages such as Kiwi juice, so maybe that's the reason :D
I wish I have my car here with me in Tripoli, it would make "wandering" and looking for interesting places a lot easier. For now I can only get around on buses and taxis, or sometimes when one of my friends is bored he'd come by and we'd cruise around in his car. Hopefully I'll be able to get my own car after a few months, when things are more "stable" :) .
