March 31, 2006 - Friday - Jamahiriya Museum - After breakfast this morning we walked through Tripoli to the Jamahiriya Museum. It was good to see the originals of the statues we saw copies of earlier at Sabratha and Leptis Magna. There is a 5 Dinar camera charge at the Museum (10 Dinars for video), which we encountered at all historical sites in Libya. It would have been valuable to have an English-speaking guide, since all the informational signs were in Arabic.
