The house is rather big, with a large front- and backyard featuring mango trees, passion fruits, avocado, moringa, papaya and banana trees. The house has a large terrace, a garage, parking space inside and outside the yard. Grocery store right next door, a bar and a restaurant across the street.

Fiction writer from Slovenia (ex-Yugoslavia). I left my home country at the age of 18 and practically travelled all my life since. Lived in Venice, Sydney, Berlin, New York ... I supported my life there doing various jobs like translator, interior designer, driver, tourist guide, filmmaker, photographer, journalist. From 1993 to 2000 I was the driving force behind the cultural centre "Metelkova mesto" in Ljubljana, Slovenia which is best known today by its hostel "Celica". My passions are solo sailing and the desert, especially the Sahara where I spent five years travelling in a converted ex-military truck. Good food, off-roading, literature and languages, of which I speak several, are also high on the list. Since 2012 I live in Burkina Faso with my wife Sita and two dogs.

Secteur 5 in Bobo-Dioulasso is a quiet residential neighbourhood not far from city centre. Like most west african cities, Bobo with its syncopated rhytm can sometimes be tiring, hence Bobo retreat. Event though being calm Secteur 5 nevertheless offers a wide variety of public places offering local and european services.
