"J'ai passé de très beaux moments à Tamegroute. Très bel accueil de Tarik, ainsi que d'Ali et d'Abdel au campement. Abdou, le prof de derbouka est également très sympathique et j'ai vraiment fait des progrès sur l'instrument en jouant ainsi beaucoup plusieurs jours d'affilée.
La visite de la casbah souterraine, de la bibliothèque et des poteries par Mamadou est intéressante. Sans oublier un petit tour au souk avec mes hôtes pour faire les courses et la randonnée en dromadaire avec le repas à Tinfu. Bref, très bon séjour, et avec un très bon rapport qualité-prix."
