What is the capital of Tunisia?

A dialogue in “La Femme et le TGV”

She says « Vous devriez avoir honte ! » which means "You should be ashamed!"

This is a good example of an avoir + [noun] phrase. Many expressions that are be + [adjective] in English are rendered like this in French:

avoir faim = to be hungry

avoir froid = to be cold

avoir raison = to be right

And among them is avoir honte, where honte is literally "shame".
