Last night we spent a convivial evening having dinner with Didier and Pascale, the French couple also in a TD5 Defender, who are staying at Auberge Triskell too. Mousaka and salad was the offering of the evening. Accompanied sadly by non-alcoholic beer. Mauritania is a “dry” country.
Today there isn’t much of excitement to write about as it has been spent undertaking domestic duties. Hand washing, cleaning out the fridge, shopping for provisions and refueling. This was interspersed with following the Australian Open Tennis Men’s final. Won by the world’s best ever player, Novak Djokovic in just 3 sets against Stefanos Tsitsipas. Brilliant!
Adam emailed us some shots he has taken over the last few days, so as there is little else to report today, I will share some with you in this blog.
Tomorrow we will set off south towards Senegal. We plan to wild camp en route and to be at the border in Diama reasonably early on Tuesday.
