If you have seen Star Wars 9 Return of Skywalker – which came out in December 2019, and you should – ignore the naysayers you will enjoy it, you would have seen Rey returned to Luke’s childhood home only to find it an abandoned mess, and that loads of soil had fallen into the courtyard.
Thankfully this is not the case as it’s in excellent condition, but the same couldn’t be said for the neighbouring cave homes.
This one appears to be only lived in by animals, there are others in a far poorer condition which have the walls collapsed.
Here’s a house which is being refurbed! think of the wonderful geek parties you could have here!! Even do a bit of Cosplay dressing up if it’s not scorching hot!
The bedrooms look done. The front entrance isn’t yet.
The “hallway” which is a tunnel from the outside to the courtyard hole is done, and walls recently rendered and very nice it looks too. I’m not sure how they came up with this painted or burnt on effects, but some of the tunnels in Sidi Driss looks very similar. This one has the symbols of Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Berber culture. I’m guessing this will be rented out, and want to show peace and love to everyone I think.
