Yesterday I had some German architecture students for visit who were interested in the mud/clay-architecture-project we are building up here with my former university; a project to preserve and to develop this old building technique (for more information please contact me).
It was nice to see these young and very motivated people, to answer their questions and to have some exchange about architecture, life and development.
I like these visits and subhanallah, it always shows me how blessed I am to live out here such a different life, to build up these cultural exchanges for more tolerance and a better understanding, to sort of unite the cultures and to be so lucky to have them both as parts of my life.
But after such meetings I always feel a bit empty or soaked out because I am not used any more to meet and to talk to so many people at once, to have the house full of interested guests, to guide them, to explain… I always need then some time to readjust myself, to calm down and to sort out all the thoughts and new inspiration.
So I am looking forward now to a quiet Friday with a bit of housecleaning, good couscous at home and some fresh strawberry cake…
