We arrive in a little corner of paradise, the oasis of Tinjit!
The place is very popular Atarois summer. Water, source of Life
The price is 200 Ougeyas for tourists and 1500 for Mauritanians!

There is even a hot spring at 30 °
Water oozes from everywhere. It is filtered by the rock, which makes it drinkable.

Then it’s 10 kilometers of pure happiness. We made the bet not to deflate the tires (We put 1 kilo on each tire instead of 2 at the front and 2.5 at the rear to increase the grip)
From time to time, company …
Then we find the asphalt road and its inhabitants
And it’s the arrival in Nouakchott where, normally traveling in the right lane, I almost took a billboard in the windshield!
Good news: Abdou wanted to learn to eat with cutlery.
He did very well!
