About the neighbourhood
The village of Bni Meslem (Asilah, Morocco) is practically untouched by tourists, or any other kind of commercial life. The locals live in a very traditional manner and spend their days tending to their crops and caring for their livestock. The main landmark is the mosque which operates as a Koranic school for the local children most days. Another focal point is the communal well where the women come throughout the day to collect water, as there is no mains supply to the houses* There is however electricity, which was only recently brought to the village and allows locals to enjoy modern technologies, like TV.
