Despite is easy to imagine Morocco as a place of warm temperatures, the Atlas mountains feature some extreme conditions. Snowy mountains and cold during most of the year, and burning heat in the dry season make cultivating crops a challenge. 

 

Local families endure a simple and scarce life, spending their time together and sleeping in the same room. Meals, like Morocco’s famous tajine, are always shared. The main source of income is cattle and agriculture, and regardless of some having former studies, most of the family members will remain farmers unless moving to the city. 

 

Moroccan hospitality is unique, and despite not having much, these families always have tea and an extra serving for travellers in need.
