In order to obtain our Mauritanian visas,we are currently staying on a very basic site,just outside Rabat,apparently these will take a couple of day’s to be issued, before we can set off again.
The drive from Tangiers was very interesting,being mainly good productive agricultural land,which was green and lush with plentiful crops and livestock.
On arrival in Rabat,we were confronted by some crazy driving, free for all roundabouts plenty of police blocks and although they didn’t stop us , were giving the locals a fair bit of grief.
Day’s have been constantly sunny with lovely blue skies,but the nights are very cold,but it’s snuggly and warm in our roof-tent !
The Blue beast is performing well, a leaky oil seal was noted, though by Mike the mechanic,who promptly fixed this,along with a new wheel bearing for good measure!(I bet you think he’s reciting this to me….well he’s not actually!)Anyway all was fixed in two ticks,which infact turned out to be four hours!
lots of egrets never knew they were so common and packs of dogs fighting all night makes usual med country howling dogs seem quiet
fingers crossed for visas
