    Update from Nouakchott, Mauritania (UK)

    Just a quick note from Mauritania’s capital city, Nouakchott (800.000 inhab.) where I arrived – tired, overheated, dusty, and frustrated because of the constant headwinds – two days ago, after 14 out of the last 15 days on the road from Bamako, Mali.

    I’ve spent the last days resting, eating well, being sort of non-social, keeping to myself, cleaning the bike, myself, and clothes, writing diary like a mad dog (it’s all in Danish), drinking café au laits in the shade, contemplating the upcoming WT-section through the Sahara Desert, getting both excited and thrilled, trying to upload photos (in vain so far), trying to keep up with everyone and everywhere. Please, don’t call these “rest days”, will you…

    News:

    I. Log updated.

    II. Diary (Danish) updated.

    III. WT’s Hall of Fame updated.

    IV. Route Map Updated.

    I will most likely be leaving the capital (and the au laits…) tomorrow and have a long, desolate stretch of some 500 km through (part of) the Sahara up to Nouadhibou on the Mauritanian border with Western Sahara. Expect long delays in Camp WT.

    Looking forward talking to you next time!

    Nicolai

    On this day..
