Architectural Exchange

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…

”Jumuah moubarak”!

  1. Salut Itto,

    Ces étudiants ont bien de la chance de t’avoir pour leur donner toutes les explications necessaires.
    Ce doit être très interressant pour eux.
    Il s’agit d’un projet à long terme?
    Combien de temps restent ils dans la vallée?

    Et toi, comment vas tu?
    Comment se passe ta grossesse? Tu arrives encore à fermer tes lacets??

    Mon projet à moi avance, nous organisons une soirée orientale le mois prochain pour récolter des fonds.
    Nous commençons a avoir des dons de vêtements et de fournitures scolaires… je suis contente.

    Nous vendons notre voiture pour acheter un 4×4 pour le désert et de cette manière nous pensons venir au Maroc en avril l’année prochaine.

    Prend bien soin de toi et de toute ta famille.
    Je t’embrasse

    Stéphanie
