A Mudbrick House that Loved Animals

All at once the house of Ouled Mgatel was invaded by animals.

First, we spotted a strange insect in the kitchen.

Since we had built the water treatment ponds, a lot of toads -African toads, that cannot live in water - a little depressive maybe, were diving in the tanks. We fished them, and let them dry under the sun.

The little turtle had disappeared, and we were waiting for her return. Meanwhile, we had bought a big one at the market in Fez. It had a good appetite - it especially loved the fava beans of our garden - and was accompanied by a friend.

Some animals even seemed to be born just to live in our little white house.
