After my first visit in 1975 I came back in Rissani in 2008. The town looks a bigger, especially the outskirts. The roads were a lot busier with all types of traffic. The towncentre itself is rather small. I could easily find my way around the souqs (picture 1) and market area.

I recognised some of the streets (picture 2) and found the places where the sheep, cows and camels were sold, very easily too. Nearby was the parking lot for the donkeys (picture 3 & 4). The first day we visited the towncentre we came just at the end of the market day at the moment most people left with their donkeys.

I had the feeling that in 1975 the atmosphere was a bit more relaxed and easygoing, but I enjoyed also the more vibrant ambiance in 2008.

Address: Tafifalt
