The people, the climate and the laid back nature. People are just nice. It has been nice to get to know them. - Aug 2021

Perfect weather; living in a place not many people get to see; kind and welcoming locals. And for me personally (a design-minded person) I have been really inspired by the North African meets European aesthetic of Algiers. Some of the buildings in Centre Ville are jaw-dropping. In need of a paint jobs yes, but the mix of Parisian-style architecture - the tall white apartments with big windows and wrought iron railings on the balconies - and Arab architecture with its domes and inner courtyards and keyhole windows, is so inspiring to me. - Apr 2021
