Mauritania :
-- Two days on road and track from Senegal to Morocco

The border of Mauritania was crossed at the Diama dam in the north of Saint-Louis. The formalities were one nothing niggling by police. On the other hand, the customs officer dispatched his task promptly.  An employee took a fee for the commune, against a receipt.
The track on a dam along the Senegal river led to the town of Rosso.

The way out of Mauritania was carried out with a few tens kilometres in the north of Nouâdhibou, then the entry in Morocco at the village of Guergarat. The mileage travelled in Mauritania was of 1,310 km in two days for 80% on tarred roads and 20% on very bad tracks.
