Last Day in Morocco!

Well, hopefully if all goes to plan, today is my last day in Morocco. I'm going up to stay at the campsite tonight, and will hopefully be setting off for Mauritania early tomorrow morning.
Yesterday, I did pretty much nothing, except read the history of various West African countries.
Not many years ago, you had to go with an army convoy to cross the border at Mauritania, once a week, and it could take days. Nowadays you can drive yourself in 6-8 hours.
They are now building a sealed road all the way to Noukachott (Mauritanian capital - you currently have to drive along the beach). I reckon it won't be long before there are regular Europe - Senegal buses, via Mauritania.
Today's breakfast music was Shania Twain (OK, I made that up...)

that don't impress me much... (look, ok, it had to be said. I didn't want to say it, but someone had to....)
My head is in the fjords of Norway. I want that meal.

Paul, it has to be said that your blog is fine and dandy. Very well written and entertaining to boot. Long live Africa.

Yes. I agree.

A damn sight better than what you wrote about before you left!

Now why could this be? Have you found divine inspiration?
