Derb Djedid (New Lane) is in a very old part of the city. It joins derb Dabachi with Douar Grouar. It runs mostly N/S but has lots of subsidiary lanes off it.
At either end of the derb men sit selling cigarettes.
I bet they can tell exactly who lives here and if they are at home or not!
The lanes are very narrow indeed - only room for a small donkey or hand cart.
Mopeds ( of course) and people on foot.
This is the little shop - closed up for the afternoon. It will re-open about 5 and stay open late.
Our next door neighbor children.
The boy comes and rings our bell pretty often about this that and the other. When he was having his photo taken he was very insistent that no other children got into it.
His sister is thrilled with the kittens.
The derb looks more lively here. All the local women wear traditional dress. Going out into the street, after the quiet of the house, is often a surprise.
Looking up the little side derb from outside our front door.
The two little boys are going home for lunch.
Looking south - a family heading home.
