    Exiled Tunisians in France are proud of the revolution back home, and excited about the prospect of a new democracy.

    They are lining up before the country's consulate in Paris to reclaim their passports.

    Prevented from going home for political reasons, many have not visited Tunisia in decades.

    But it has taken time for them to build up a life in France, so some remain cautious about returning to Tunisia for good.
