    Description

    Hello there ! I'm a 34 years old marocan man living in Tagounite in a little house above 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, donkeys, ... 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).
    The work is easy and we plan Day to Day on what we Will be doing.
    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 bread 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 teach 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 but just above to my shop with toilets/shower, kitchen etc.
    I have one room in the appartment that Will be shared with other workawayers.
    The accommodation is quite basic but I am happy to share everything and find solutions when needed. You can sometimes sleep in my parents kasbah on carpets with pillows (beds of Morroco !) and maybe in the fields, we have built a small Hut or under the stars if the weather is too hot ! There is a washing machine for your clothes, electricity and the tap water is drinkable but you can bring something to filter if needed.

    You can smoke in the house if you want, take any showers as you want.
    Of course, there is a ventilator !

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