What we did in Tripoli
When we arrived in Tripoli, it was a little cooler then we expected it to be, but it was around winter season. Tripoli is the capital, largest city, principal harbor, and biggest commercial and manufacturing center of the North African country of Libya. Tripoli is located in the North-west of Libya and is near the Mediterranean sea, so we had time to go to the beach. And there were many people in the city, probably around 1.1 million.
Tripoli is also known as Tripoli-of-the-West. The city was founded in the 7th century BC, by the Phoenicians.
