Nouakchott the Capital City of Mauritania 2005
Beach Area views (2)

A small part of Nouakchott's fishing fleet .. past and present

Many boats have family names .. colourful murals and Islamic symbols

A pirogue graveyard with a small hotel in the distance .. where we would drink lovely mango juice ...

... and watch some Mauritanians having a beach party

The half completed Ministry of Works building that will eventually service the many new commercial developments in a vast area just inland from the beach.

The strength of the salt-saturated air can be seen with the severe erosion of this wall

Modern style of fibreglass pirogue .. pretty, but lacking the character of the wooden originals
