Building houses from earth in Morocco is like making sand castles but with fully grown children in the sand pit!
Here are a selection of photos of the building of Chez Max. The house is located in the stunning village of Tagadert, 24 km from Marrakech on the Amizmiz road. The houses are constructed of earth bricks ("tub" in Arabic).
Your team did an excellent job.

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.

It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
