The challenge: share your take on the idea of room.
This is certainly different than my typical idea of a room, but when you travel, you see how other people live and adapt to their environment and begin to broaden your definition of, for example, what constitutes a room. In this case, a nomadic family of Berbers in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco uses a series of adjoining caves as rooms to suit different purposes. Here, they cook (notice the ceiling blackened by cooking fires), weave rugs and entertain guests like us with a glass or two of mint tea. They use other “rooms” for sleeping and for keeping animals. Later in the season, the family will move their belongings and their flock of sheep to another grazing area.
