We just arrived in a nameless place 80 Kilometers north of the border between Mauritania and Western Sahara. We took the perfect tarmac road that follows the coast north from Noakchott to Nouadhibou today. All day there was a persistent sand storm raging, shaking the poor little Land Rover to it’s core. Sand dunes were covering parts of the road. You even find sand between your teeth at the end of a day like this. There is a surprisingly good and cheap hotel here and we just ate some freshly fried fish and chips.

Tomorrow we’ll continue our long journey north.
