    Description

    Hello there ! I'm a 34 years old marocan man living in Tagounite in a little house next to my shop. I have also bio fields with my familly in wich I work too.

    Tagounite is a small town near the desert (30km) with many taxis. It's a unique place because you will see there beautiful landscapes of sand, mountains, palm trees, goats, dunkeys, ... There is a souk every thursday and sunday at Tagounite, a lot of typical shops, and thanks to my motorbike, we will visit the area and take the tea with my familly, friends, etc ... !

    It's like a big paradise oasis near the desert (we can even say IN the desert) that makes this place unique in the world !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In the fields, you will learn the gardening with typical marocan tools (cutting plants, plowing, etc). Maybe you could play some musical instruments from here (oud, ...). I will help you to visit the area and make your trip in the desert easier ! Also, you will discover the souk of Tagounite

    Also, you will learn a lot of traditions from here as we can't find them in the big cities (typical foods and breads from my familly or myself).
    If you want, you could try to cook vegetables and meat with spices or make the tea !
    You will learn quickly the bases of arab language and you could learn me your language too !

    And, the last but not the least, if you want you could go to the desert and sleep there to see how nomad life works !

    It's a really good cultural exchange here because of all these reasons and because my familly and I are open minded and it would be a pleasure to teach you a lot of things from here.

    Help

    I need some help in the fields for plowing, cutting plants, picking up fruits and vegetables. Obviously we don't use motorised engines for this so you will do this with tools from here !
    Secondly, I have the project to have a bigger farm so maybe later I will need some help for building a new barn. It's a manuel work that is required here so you don't need language skills !

    Accommodation

    I live in a little house not finish yet but peacefull just next to my shop with toilettes/shower, kitchen etc. As it is not finish yet, you will sleep in my parents house on carpets with pillows (beds of Morroco !) and maybe outside under the stars if the weather is too hot ! There is a washing machine for your clothes, electricity and many bottles of fresh and healthy water. You won't have to drink the local water of Tagounite.

    You can smoke in the house if you want, take any showers as you want.
    Of course, there is a ventilator !
    There is a room for workawayers in the house of my parents and you can rest in many rooms if you want to be alone sometimes.

    We don't have internet box but in town you can have it in coffeeshops and there is the 4G here.
