Nine hours on the collective van from Atar have made the lights of Nouakchott a welcome sight. Banks that don't open, goats decaying in the streets, monolithic mosques, and money changers everywhere are some of the things you can expect to see. But Nouakchott also has its relaxing oases...

I visited Nouakchott, Mauritania, with three friends while living in Dakar, Senegal. Great short trip, VERY friendly city residents, good foreign experience and great places to shop.
