Mauritanian Sands

We didn’t spend much time in Mauritania, just a few nights. Right before we left a couple of french tourists had been shot by terrorists, so we were a little concerned and only transited through the country. A bit of a shame really, had we done the trip the other way round we would have most likely spent quite some time here.

We found that the more remote or the poorer the place you are in, the friendlier the people and the more genuine they are. Even though they have nothing people were more than happy to share whatever they had with us.

This was taken in the Parc national du banc d’arguin. It’s supposed to be a great place for sea birds. Perhaps one day, I’ll return.
