We arrive to Dar Khalifa a bit late. It’s a challenge to reach the house even for the second time. First time Tahir picked us up from the road. We were too busy chatting to remember the way. No address. We pass by Harley Davidson, luxury villas and the slums. People in Bidonville are sweet, they all greet us with smile even though we don’t know each other. I had a different opinion about this place. Finally we stand in front of a massive wall. That’s the garden of Dar Khalifa.
Tahir is a warm person with thousands extraordinary stories to share. We sit down in the garden and talk… Luckily we manage to record 24 minutes of his amusing speech before some unannounced guests come. The house is always full of people! No wonder why everybody loves to be there…
Bonus! Some quotes quickly srcibbled down during my talk with Tahir!
“I love that hybrid country!”
“Almost every American has a psychiatrist. In Morocco the family and society are the therapy”
“Morocco is such an obvious place to live!”
“What I love about Casa is that people recognize you. It is a very gentle, sweet place”
