Photographer's Note

A "dar", or traditional residence for a rich (and large) family, now being rented by 4 poor families in the medina of Sale : difficult to describe the place as it is so complex, accessible from a door at the end of an alley lost in a maze of very narrow streets, after which you follow a narrow corridor (unchanged in this case) and you arrive in this courtyard which has known better days.

(If you are interested in the architecture of this house, have a look at the whole series of 6 photos)

(This is what I prefer when I travel : being welcomed inside houses, meeting the various members of the families, sharing meals with them...
My interest goes also to those fastuous old buildings, specially if they have not been restored but still in relatively good condition, with families living inside : saw similar cases with different architectures in Iran, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and... don't remember where else - could you recommend other countries ? In sub-Saharan Africa maybe ?)
