Oran Soul

Some of the most authentic faces you will ever watch! Oranese are good living , life enjoying folks...They just love talking, laughing, singing and dancing...Giving attention to the olders is a no miss... Hospitality is a duty...Tea is served anywhere...

They 'll state about facts of life from a different sight...back to the roots is what I want to say from my insight...but this is universal memory that stands behind these faces...

Algeria is a fertile land and I let you taste some of these nice and wild souvenirs you would bring back home...

looking forward to see you in Oran!

Good times in north Africa

Welcome! Please relax and enjoy a fantastic journey through east to south Oran. This place is called Port aux Poules. That is a beautiful little place you have to see once in your life! Fresh sea food, Rai music and party rules! Friendly folks overthere too...Algeria is on its way to economic and political stability. Since that, the Oranese coast has recover her real summer nights rai&soul. Porto Paulus was the name during the Romanian empire. Port aux poules during french colonisation and finally Mers el Hadjadj since the independance. Nevertheless, the street's village and houses didn't change, the good spots are still the same.
