Busy summer in Ouled Mgatel

The houses have been whitewashed… (Not ours though. Not yet.)



Strange things have appeared in the fields.

That’s how they store wheat in Ouled Mgatel


Mohammed has built a house for his newly acquired tractor…


And Smaïn is still waiting for his cow to eat all the capers bushes.

Man, I need a shelter like that for our tractor . . . except with an actual roof, since we get actual snow.

Actually, there will be a real roof... in winter, it rains a lot. They built the whole thing real fast, in a few days, but then ramadan (the fasting period for Muslims) begun. So the tractor will have to wait for his roof.

Interesting to know how wheat can be stored! I love the picture with the cow eating the capers best.
Your pictures are full of special atmosphere!
