Street Scenes of St. Louis - Sénégal - December 2005
My return journey from Nouakchott to Banjul in The Gambia was by bush taxi via Rosso, St. Louis, Touba and Kaolack.
Nouakchott to Rosso 3 hours (1,200 Ouguiya) - Rosso to St. Louis 2 hours (CFA 1,200) - St. Louis to Kaolack 4.5 hours (CFA 6,700) - Kaolack to the Gambian border 2
hours (CFA 1800) - Gambian border to Banjul variable (55 Dalasis)
I took the opportunity to spend longer in St. Louis and discover more of its charms .. recording some colourful street scenes and luckily finding some beautiful bead specimens
at a trade bead show in one of the hotels by the riverside.
All in all .. my experiences of the Summer and the Winter of 2005 in Mauritania were unforgettable.
I will leave you to view the pictures on the following pages, congratulate you on your fortitude in
reaching this far and hope you have enjoyed my story. Soon ( Summer 2006 ) I will fly to The Gambia and then onward for a return visit to Nouakchott and my friends in Mauritania .. what happened and what 'treasures' I found ..
I can now tell you here.
