Today all the Bamako-teams, including our three brave vespateers, are cruising under the sorching sun in Mauritania, a former French colony. Mauritania has one of the lowest GDP rates in Africa, despite being rich in natural resources. The country is comparable in size to Egypt.
The guys will be driving 250 kilometres today, a long and sandy day, the roadbook promises. Some of the drive is on the beach, and the drivers have to watch so they are not caught by high tide. Appearantly, this has happened in previous years!
Tonight´s camp is right on the beach, and the teams are encouraged to bring fresh seafood from the nearby fishing villages to the grill. Yum… Enjoy yourselves!
