I’m 177 kilometres away from the Mauritanian border. Two – three more days before the crossing.
I’ve spend some time in the desert now. And I must say… It’s not always what I expected. I thought it would be a dry area, without any vegetation. In fact, there are plenty of plants, in many different colours. The scenery is amazing. Someone told me there was some rain over here about a month ago. Maybe that’s why everything is so colourful. I haven’t seen a lot of dunes here, but there’s plenty of amazing rock formations here.
Tonight I’m sleeping next to a road restaurant. Very welcoming people here!
