“Tripoli is a place to be lived in: it can only be appreciated to the full after long and detailed explorations. The visitor who walks quickly, purposefully, down Shar’a 24 December completely misses the piquant contrasts between the shady Islamic School of Arts and Crafts, of the Turkish period, tiny Italian shops selling groceries and fruit, a Libyan Bookshop, an Indian merchant, a vast American oil company offices. Nothing clashes: it appears rather that an imaginative internationalism has found a home to proclaim itself.”
