Youll notice houses here are a bit destroyed. Someone told me they had a great ztorm a few months before which destroyed almost everything and also ended their electricity and all. People here live far away from everything. I have no idea from what people subsist from.
The Rich Moutains
ok these mountains are not exactly near Bir Moghrein. They are located 1 hour away, which in sahara's desert standards its not very far at all. These mountains are on the top of the most beautiful one i've ever seen. My friends and I encountered some Polisario Front on a small resting zone right on top of the mountain. On top of the mountain there's a small house with 3 compartments, one for the women, another with a small shop and cooking area, and the other free to drink tea and sleep, whatever you desire.
While we were there some polisario front people were painting their 4wd cars plates with a differetn numbers...wow.
I got to notice on my travelings that small things like this are the most apreciated by me and by all. Sun sets exist everywhere. Don't miss this one here. once on a life time unless you wich to come back to nothern mauritania 600km away from the neares town which doesnt even have electricity... ha
doors here are painted in all sorts of colours and materials which create a very nice pattern along with the mud houses.
haha, like i said on my previous tip, sun sets are not to miss, the same aplicable on the sun rising. The colours here on the desert get a special taste along with this small village with mud houses.
The mud buildings and streets
this is a place very far from everything. the closest city is 440km away south (Zouerat) and 600km north (Tindouf Algeria), the rest is only desert.
