This is an extract from 'The Sheltering Sky' by Paul Bowles:
One day a Targui comes, he is tall and handsome, on a beautiful mehari. He talks to Outka, Minouna, and Aicha, he tells them about the desert, down there where he lives, his bled, and they listen, and their eyes are big. Then he says: ' Dance for me' , and they danced.
What's the meaning of 'his bled' here?
