Ahmed rushes into the house in his usual adolescent larger-than-life manner. He disturbs Grandma’s, Shumishas and mine after lunch peace when he announces that the time had changed last night. He takes off the clock from the wall and puts it an hour ahead. Grandma and Shumisha angrily ask him what he is doing and [...]

I haven’t been to these many weddings in my whole life as I’ve attended here in such a short span of time. Four in less than a week and I could’ve gone to a least a few more if I could split myself in half. Wow. Apparently it’s like this every year after [...]

The purpose of my living here in Oued El-Ouliya is, in short, to research the impact of the recent
reform (2004) of the Family Code (or the Moudawana) on people’s lives through interviews,
discussions with both women and men and basically through being a “participant observant” -
ethnographer. The Family Code is a code that deals with everything [...]

The bell rang during our breakfast. It was a neighbor asking me to read medicine instructions which were in English and she couldn’t understand. Her child was in pain and she gave him Zyndol, a strong painkiller which shouldn’t be taken without doctor’s supervision as the effect of taking it is similar to smoking [...]

It is two o’clock and we just finished with lunch, delicious tajine with loads of home-made bread, which one of the women in the house bakes every day (women in the house alternate their daily chores and so when one woman is taking care of cooking, the other is in charge of [...]

Arriving to new places has always been a bit hard for me particularly when I’m travelling alone. Morocco isn’t a new place but it nonetheless feels foreign, like I don’t really belong here. With every new visit this feeling subsides a bit as I know my way around the country, around cities, around people though [...]

Going back to work or studying after 3 months of sheer enjoyment is no piece of cake (can imagine that going back to work after 9 months of maternity leave is even worse…). I’ve been back a good week (‘good’ in its phrasal meaning but definitely ‘bad’ when referring to how much work I have [...]

First of all I apologize if with this blog I will inadvertently hurt somebody’s feelings but read this on and perhaps you’ll forgive me…

It’s a rainy day today in Rabat and I have to say I’ve enjoyed this rain immensely. True, I always complain about Britain’s gloomy weather but here after a month and a half of mostly cloudless skies and days this rain feels good. It is also an excuse for me not to frantically run around [...]
