Our Moroccan Mudbrick House : it's not completely over yet...

... but we did some good work!

We now have a real kitchen, all white and clean. Well, there are still a couple of things left to do, but it's nice, isn't it?

The kitchen, covered with white and black soap

And here's our dining room, freshly whitewashed. We're really proud !


And, last but not least, the garden which, hopefully, will soon be wonderful. We sowed and planted a lot of stuff, mint, parsley, coriander, melons, orange trees, lemon trees, zucchinis... We apparently did quite bad with the seeds, but Abdelali, the son of Mohammed, our neighbor, came and repaired the damages we cause with big blows of hoe. It turned out we didn't dig enough, and the roots of the plants would have been very small.

Hello Fred

We met briefly last year at Riad Zany. I will be in Fez with my partner and our three small children from Aid el Maoulid Annabaoui (Thursday 20 March), maybe my friend Louis da Fez could drive us out to see your house, the countryside looks fantastic now. Please let me know if this is possible.
