A new road is being built in Nouakchott It goes from Ilot K, area where I live, to Las Palmas where my partner has his Auberge Sahara. I went walking along it the other day as its still very nice temperatures (not too hot) and found a pack of stray dogs just laying there. Behind them is this enormeous space of empty land where soon they'll probably start to build.
As I reach the tarmac road I can see all the trucks parked. Its been a couple of weeks since they did any work in the road, rumour has it that the gouvernment has run out of money but I've noticed just a couple of days ago that there was some pedestrian walks beeing done in a different area.
