In short, a full-fledged Arab country with an African way of life.
The country is small, almost everything is in the desert, there is practically nothing to watch.
But, after all, this is an Arab country, first of all, and, most importantly, religious. This is called the “Islamic Republic of Mauritania” (abbreviated RIM :)). Well, almost like Iran. Religiousness is manifested here in everything: the local constantly in communication are interested in your confessional identity, or rather, whether you are Muslim. In Mauritania, you quickly learn the time of all the prayers, because they are all around you. If you go in a minibus, she stops, and everyone comes out to pray.
The roads in the country, in general, are not bad. Asphalt is laid, more or less tolerably. There is even a markup somewhere.
Most of the shops are more than primitive. If the place allows, sellers sleep also right in them. The vast majority of products are imported from neighboring countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia. There is also Spain and France.
There are steep villas in Nouakchott and Nouadhibou! Flowers, landscaping .. And around right at the walls dusty primer and garbage.
The Moorish leader! He reminded Batka.

It is evident that people are open, direct. And kind, that is typical.
According to statistics, only 22% of the population of Mauritania has access to electricity. Tell me please, laptops and televisions on the photo from the network are powered – or from solar panels?
P.S. I wonder if you are mistaken for a Spaniard? In Latin America, probably, often for their descended?
In the photo from the network. But, for example, railway. Railway station in Nuadibu on solar panels. During the day, you can recharge your phone or laptop, but you can not put the boiler in place. In the evening and this can not be.
The process is certainly a tourist attraction. But when you are tuned to drink tea, and before you such a transfusion is a multi-minute, you start to get nervous.
So Mauritania: “inhabited” territory is a relatively small wedge along the ocean and the Senegal River, and the rest of the part is useless Sahara (without roads on a normal car).
And mobil. The first thing that the Philippines is recovering from a typhoon is the repeaters. The villages sit for another 2 weeks without electricity – and the mobile tower-retranslators receive it somehow mysteriously. And all tryndyat on mobile phones, somewhere they manage to charge them.
It is useful for a traveler to know 1) this information about camels 2) the fact that in Antarctica there are penguins, and Arcticids are polar bears, and together they do not hang out. Only in some Hollywood movies.
Why would a traveler know where some camels live?
What do you mean why? To ponto!
As for the Islamization of society, it’s a bit wrong: women’s outfits, like men’s, are related to life in the desert and not by Islam. Moreover, the role of women in society in Mauritania is high, since the Tuareg tradition prevails there. Wahhabism has not yet penetrated so much into this country!
