  • Description


    My name is hassan, I am a nomad and grew up in a nomad family in the desert. Now I live at the border of the desert 12 km from tagounite in a nomad house in a little nomad village. I am happy to receive people to help me build this house. I will teach you the nomad life style and house building. We have a livingroom and bedrooms and since a few weeks a toilet. We started to grow our own vegetables. I like to learn about other cultures and improve my English.
    It's very calm here. Shower is with bucket warm water.
    Soon I will make our own hamam.
