  1. great photos guys hope your riding still goes smoothly

  2. I really like your first picture. Oh, and the makeshift shelter is simply brilliant! We might adopt your technique ;-)
    Why are they so many shipwrecks in Mauritania???

  3. Awesome gallery! Loved seeing the bikes at the Tropic of Cancer! ;-) Shipwreck looked unreal.

  4. Thanks folks.

    Isabel, been meaning to tell you: for any future cyclists coming your way, there are water points every 20kms or so (usually much less) on the Nouakchott-Rosso road. Hope all’s well at the auberge!

    Lisa, yep, I quite liked seeing the bikes at the Tropic of Cancer too :-)

    Marlène: they’re insurance jobs!

  5. great gallery huw and bex!
