The Experience

If you wish, you can learn how to cook tajines, gamilla, couscous and other traditional Moroccan dishes, and we will all cook together for the volunteers and for ourselves :) Every day one or two people can cook, and each day/each meal we will shift. We cook three meals a day and eat all together. During cold nights we eat inside, warm nights outside while enjoying the sunset! We also need to take care of our many cats, dog and of our donkey :)

Mary is a very kind and respectful woman. She is calm, positive and very relaxed to be around with. I am thankful for her flexibility, understanding and patience while she was here. Despite the heat Mary was always able to help. She helped in cooking, washing, cleaning and in moving bricks for a new part in the project. She was so good with the newborn kittens too :) Mary was here with 4 other volunteers. All together it was a very comfortable, joyful and helpful group to have in the project.

I would be happy to receive you here again Mary. All the best to you!

Agustin stayed with me in my project.
I was very happy to meet him and I really enjoyed our time together. I experienced him as kind, calm and hard working, and a relaxing person to talk with.

He's a very open minded person. He is a good worker and doesn't mind to work hard, even in the really hot weather. He also has a big patience.
Agustin had a big interest in our culture, and was curious about how things work here, about our traditions, our way of living.

Keep going as a good person as you are and you are always very welcome in my family whenever you feel like visiting.

Take care

Said is a unbelievably kind and smart. We had so much fun together drinking tee, cooking, making philosophy;D the work is not hard and not too long (which i found great in this climate). We lifted up the ground floor in Saids house. We had a great time. Also he made a trip to the desert with us which was just perfect. All in all I can highly recomment Said as a host. You will not regret your decision to work at his place!

En este lugar vas a poder vivir la verdadera Hospitalidad de la mano del anfitrión Said.
En mi caso buscaba algo exótico, riqueza cultural y poder meterme de lleno en una cultura desconocida para vivirla y aprender al máximo acerca de ella y con este intercambio lo he conseguido con creces.
Creo que merece mucho la pena conocer este peculiar anfitrión y su proyecto, sobretodo si llegas de un lugar en el que los recursos mínimos para poder mantenerse con vida como el agua y la comida se dan por sentados.
Gracias por todo Said, tu humilde ejemplo ha quedado grabado en mi corazón.

Sergi's company here was really nice :) He has a very kind, warm and welcoming soul, and was very excited about everything here. He helped us with the work, and went on a trip into the Sahara desert. I was sad that he could only stay so short, and I hope he can come again for a longer period, another time! You are always welcome brother, thank you again for your warm and lovely company. For any other host: accept him and you will have a warmhearted, funny and always happy person around you :) Thank you brother!

Andrea stayed with us for one week at our project during Ramadan. We are happy that she visited us. She helped us for a lot of different work she did her best to work hard. She was very open minded, easy going and very friendly.
And we really hope that you had a good time with us of course, especially because of the changing with the beginning of summer and the Ramadan time, I can imagine it was maybe a bit hard.
I highly recommend Andrea to any other host. And of course we wish to see you again in the future and feel very welcome any time you think to visit us again.
Thank you!
