Algeria, Tourist Destination
I am amused by this: Reuters AlertNet - INTERVIEW-Algeria counters violent image to woo tourists
ALGIERS, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Algeria is an emerging tourist destination which is spreading the word to potential visitors that the image of a country overshadowed by extremist violence is out of date, the tourism minister said in an interview.
Ahem, as Algerian security convoys are still being attacked, I would say the image is not really out of date at all. Never mind the horrible standards of hosting service.... Algeria isn't ready to be a beach destination (as the Minister would like per the arty).

Forget about tourism. A worthless investment. When Boutef keels it'll likely be a return to the state of nature.
