A North African country.

Zinadin Zedane is Algerian.

Watch the Battle for Algiers for a sense of the place.

When I was there (mind the lamp) we asked one of the local drivers to translate the phrase 'I want to give it to you up the shit box'. Which we then used for weeks trying to impress the local ladies enough to loosen the morals. Only later did an interpreter tell us that what we'd actually been wandering around saying was in fact 'I want to make a box of shit'. No wonder it didn't work!
