  • Description


    Haloo. salam
    my name is Rbide I am 28 years old
    I am the youngest son of a Tuareg familly from the south of desert in a calm part of Tagounite .
    and I am very willing to rebuilt an old house of my family and turn it into a nice place for visitors and tourists.
    - The house is made of sand and throughout the years of standing uninhabited time has left its signs on its walls. I now want to rebuilt the walls, give the rooms a new and fresh design and let the garden grow green again.

    -Tagounite is located at the edge of the desert and therefore a welcoming place for everybody who wants to visit the sahara in its greatest.
    From the town tagounite it is a 1 klm walk to my family's house,
    In any case I will come to the place of you arrival to pick you up and walk you to the project.
    -A nice way to get to Tagounite is by the CTM bus wich goes every day.

    - As my family is still living right next door to the project and therefore everybody visiting can get an authentic impression on the life of settled down nomads Tuaregs.

    - I am just getting started with my project
    and will be very happy to welcome you efry time en my place
    May hawse obane for efry wane.
