Dear Gazelle Dz

Don’t listen to Fatony.
Algiers is a beautiful city for those who visit it with their heart. I am sure you will enjoy visiting the city that tells the history of our people in every street, every path of it.
I really hope you can manage to visit all the cities you mentioned, but yes Hassi Messaoud is not exactly a nice place to visit. In the south better go to Ghardaia, Biskra, ElOued, Timimoun, Janet, Tamanarasset…

Nice to know that you take positively the wounds of your past. May God reward you in the future and surround you with goodwill people.

Wait till the new city is built.

Just one suggestion Gazelle, don't expect much from visiting DZ so that u r positively surprised when u see smth fab and not disappointed if/when u don't like it smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



Saha Ithri,

I see we have at least one rabat joie in the crowd...It is a pity that you don't spend more emergy encouraging us to seek the good of the bled rather than the energy you utilize to to disparage...ah well. you cannot discourage me amd my quest....Algeria sings in my heart and her bloodlines course through me veins...As my father in law would remind all: Algerie: terre du contrastes/terre de
beauté smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> ! (and double for most Algerians, who for the moist part are the best of the Mafhreb!)

Chère daughter of Algeria,

Perhaps Fatony has had bad experiences with Alger, or is visited with the ghosts of Heathcliff and Cathy who wander the moors of Yorkshire; but I am sure he had good intentions.

If I had listed all the places in the bled that I wish to see, there would be no room for future posts-from any one:)! Miss TamTam? No way José!

As for the wounds of my past, I had the choice to let them fester and become bitter, or to allow them to heal and seek better; al hemdoulillah I chose the latter. Besides, one or two bad apples shouldn't be allowed to spoil a barrel of the sweeter ones laying underneath:)!

Saalam a toi

Rima, it is not a 100% off-topic since we're still welcoming Gazelle, who apparently doesn't want to go outside this thread :P
Gazelle,

I guess u mis-understood me. I am not a rabat-joie and certainly not when it comes to DZ smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
When I suggested u don't expect too much, I did so because I am not considering you as a foreigner who wants to visit a new, probably exotic, place; but rather as a DZ woman who is nostalgic about a place she only saw in pictures and who's probably expecting smth.
This somehow idealizes things -which your words tend to prove, see you use words (terre du contraste etc) one would find in tourism flyers- and could lead to disappointments.
My words were just there to tell u that the country is really different from whatever u saw in pictures and not everything looks great.
They are in noway a discouragement or a disparaging energy smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
Having said that, let me confirm that every inch of DZ is wonderful (no sarcasm here), so yeah go ahead and take your friends with u. Isn't that an encouraging effort? :P


Saha Ithri,

It was my father in law who used terre du contrastes to very accurately describe the bled-her land, her people and yes, even her politics!...it was accurate then and is accurate now and is just a fact about Algeria and her people and hardly "idealistic"...Would you prefer I write in the the bleakness of Yasmina Khadra? If one reads him, one would never take one step inside the bled...and certainly not venture to Alger. He has nothing redemptive to say...only negatives:(

Don't worry, I am hardly naive or unmidnful of what has been happening at home, but those things do not destroy unless people allow them to do so.

Saha Rima,

There are good, bad and worse people in every location-whether in DZ or otherwise. However, one can always avoid the bad and the worse and move on to the good...one finds what one searches for and sees what one wants..that is human nature. Reality and truth are dependent upon one's perceptions and perspectives-and their level of understanding. Alger has her beauty and her cesspools-all cities do. (There are sections of Washington DC that I would avoid like the plague-spots one will never see in a carte postale or in a group of photos; never the less they are there...)

Thanks for the links, which I will check out later.

My mother was from Azzefoun; as the scenes in my head from childhood are of Tizi Ouzou's environs, I believe I was born near there...other memories are of pre-independence Alger...which is another reason I must go to the capital.

As for Chréa ...my former husband sent me a post-card of Chréa which captured a lone skier swooshing down a hill on one of his trips home ...It was the first scene I ever saw of the bled-well, at least at that time...that was many many years ago; I want to see Tikjda buried in the snow:)! I'd happily spend a winter there in its solitude ...making steamy pots of chorba, etc. in a huge kettle hanging above the fireplace.

Dardja and I are slowly recognizing one another...al hemdoulillah for my two dearest friends here in the US who can help me with it when they have the time, and now for Fatony's lessons. Any plans to add some of the Berber languages of the bled?

Kind regards,

Saha Fatony,

Merci pour votre advis, mais....my father in law is buried in Alger-El Alia- near other dignitaries, so I cannot go around the city of white. He was fromerly Rector of the University of Alger, formerly Minister of culture & tourism and at his death head of the High Islamic Concil; so avoiding Alger La Blanche would be impossible! Besides, my kh'ti and other best friend have realtives in the city-another reason I would need to visit the capital.


This man has to be Mouloud kacim nait belkacim allah yerahmou, am I right?

Here is me.

100 % Algerian 29 years old guy as fatony says I'm an old man lol, my name is sidali, lived in Algiers most of my life even if I don't remember any summer without travelling, studied at the famous bab ezzouar univeristy " computer science" went over the 5 years there everybody talks about, I don't think these were the worst years of life as people say, Indeed it was hard with : strikes, bombs,....exams...etc, but looking backward I guess these were the best years.

Then i worked in a couple of international companies the reason why I travelled a lot (the most famous was djezzy ya el mekrizi hahaha), then I lived sometime in Germany, Romania.. and now I'm in Toronto still working In IT as always... what I like : everything halal, what I hate : everything haram....

Where do I see myself in 5 years: back to Algeria with a lot of experience....and find a person who loves me.
