40 years ago this week a coup in Libya saw Colonel Gadaffi rise to power. And remain in power since then. Libya has seen some huge changes during this time - from international pariah during the Lockerbie episode to newcomer on the tourist circuit. As a country it has tremendous attractions - the most famous is the incredible Roman ruins at Leptis Magna but there are other, less well known but equally worthy sites such as the ancient city of Sabratha and the incredible rock art and scenic formations of the Acacus Mountains. Being new on the tourist scene means that a wander through Tripoli's souk is a pleasurably 'hassle-free' experience. But go now before everyone gets to hear about it!
