    bir moghrein mauritania morocco

    Old spanish road of Western Sahara
    we are already inside morocco or better no mans land of western sahara. this area has lots of pirates that can rob you or kidnap you, last year a group of germans were kidnaped here and people asked for money to the german government.
    you have 30km from the castle until you get the wall which separates the mine free or safe area with militaries from morocco.

    bir moghrein mauritania morocco

    This is the castle that stands right in the border with Morocco. From now on and along 30km (militar outpost) you have no mans land, with pirates and criminals, lots of land mines, destroyed roads...think twice about passing here, or at least bring a 4wd car, go by me!! we're alive i dont know how...

    Blue UN stones land mine free

    bir moghrein mauritania morocco

    This are the stones painted by UN armed forces. This way is land mine free. don't go out of the marked tracks please. We had some problems because many of the UN way was actually inside sand, and with a small car already very tired from the long trip, we had some problems passing and some other ways had to be choosen, so we were lucky about the mines i guess.
