Marrki is like Siwa 20 years ago. Donkey carts and all the family garden farming is still the norm here. If you want to immerse yourself in the old ways of Siwa, here is a great place to do it. If you plan to grow things in the garden, you will find all your neighbours interested in what you are doing – at the same time offering advice on all things olives and dates.
Electricity and water supply are nearby. You need to build a small house inside the garden and you can then get water and electricity and then apply for blue paper and own it in your name if you are not Egytain.
