    Islam is the main religion in Mauritania. Remember the name of the country is: Islamic Republic of Mauritania. Islam here is very strong. If you're used to more relaxed countries like Morocco, you'll notice the difference here.

    Like elsewhere in the country all cities have goats hanging around the streets. They are free to go wherever they want and desire. This picture was taken inside the old town of Chinguetti not far from the old mosque. Here this house is destryoed.

    this is how a local house looks like in the new part of town. If you see the outside walls of a hosue thise is how it look inside. Usually houses have a patio and maybe 5 up to 6 different houses inside the walls.
