Libyan Woman

Why the Marines went to Tripoli

This must be why the Marines went to the shores of Tripoli. Omran contacted me from Tripoli with an offer to swap a postcard. Not having any postcards from Libya, I was glad to accept. Next thing I know, five postcards show up in my mailbox! Looks like a good start to my Libya file. While they are all interesting, this one, alas, is the only one featuring a woman.

Not having met any Libyan women myself (so far as I know, and I exclude American women of Libyan descent), I googled the phrase “Libyan women” — at which point Google suggested I search for “hot Libyan women” and “beautiful Libyan women.” Most of the sites under those categories turned out to be mail-order bride sites. Could there really be a high demand outside of Libya for Libyan wives?

I hardly think you would find any actual Libyan women who are members there.
