    Description

    I 'm a teacher.aged 60.Most of my guests call me Uncle Musti or Moroccan father ( a warming heart thing). I live in the heart of the old city.My hobbies are cycling, making new friends,and socialising .Most of my acquaintances call me( kindness itself),maybe because I am a calm, straight forward, honest person with a
    good sense of humor which gets on well with almost everyone. I don't drink or smoke, but very much enjoy hospitality and exchanging cultural issues and values.

    Here is a link to the interview I did for Workaway Host of the month:



    This is my link as a workawayer as well :

    workaway.info /workawayerprofile.html?w=Mustiasilyaya

    -------ON THE SOCIAL LEVEL----
    I like to..
    .----help the needy
    .----make new friends
    .----advise and provide tips for my guests about many enquieries.
    .-----prepare and teach how to make local food and drinks.
    .---invite friends to meet my guests.
    ..----invite my guests to socialise with locals, friends, students, family or all of them together.

    ---.organise social, sportive , artistic or cultural meetings.
    ----(--ON THE CULTURAL LEVEL--)
    -----.I speak English ''French and Arabic (fluent) Spanish(intermediate) German (beginner)
    -----.I can organise debates on varied topics for my guests and invite them to participate in discussions...
    -----.My guests can borrow books or so from the local library.
    -----.They can be invited to ceremonies,activities,cinema,cooking classes inside or outside Marrakesh.

    .------take part in competitions in cultural headquarters.
    --(-ON THE TOURISTIC LEVEL--)
    .My city is the 4 th touristic city worldwide.So,it has..
    Many waterfalls,valleys,monuments,historical sites.......

    .---teach you how to bargain prices.
    .----show you around when I am free.
    .----bike with you if time allows.
    ---.take you outside the city during my leisure time.
    .----make you meet other intellectual people to clarify things about cultural issues.
    .-----invite you to parties, ceremonies , ..show you some hidden places that reflect real culture...


    For these, I need another pair of hands to help around the house in exchange for accomodation (3 couches)...
    Concerning food, I have a special organic diet.(I eat only healthy organic carefully chosen and good food.)..=it takes me time and energy and costs me money to look for and find organic food...
    For these reasons ,there are three options for food:1) if you're interested in sharing my food, we have to split the cost
    and take turn in cooking as I can't cook everydayOR . 2) you can buy your own food.OR . 3) you can eat out. ( I can show you cheap and clean restaurants. Besides if you are interested in cooking , I can teach you how to cook local, healthy dishes in exchange for teaching me one of your local or favourite dish.
    Concerning your help :





    You are supposed to do the washing,cleaning,tidying,help in cooking,help with the internet.Finally,help with cracking argan fruit. to extract argan oil.or cleaning some organic seeds.
    Maximum working hours are 3 hours a day.Please,try to do at least 2 hours a day.ok ?
    Maximum hosting is two weeks.
    Exceptions can be for health issues or long term social projects, like charity, helping orphans...


    Thus, for whoever wants to take part in my culture,my skills,my style of Life and my languages as a Morocan intellectual
    teacher, and to bridge the gap between cultures meaningfully, you will be the most welcome.
    Please, if you are really willing to exchange cultural issues and values at my place, you will be the most welcome. If you are looking for free place .sorry to tell you to look for it elsewhere...
