Photographer's Note

Following my last post about Mauritania.... although life is hard in the desert, you may have happy and relaxing moments. We went to Chinguetti at the occasion of one big event in the village, the donkey and camels races. Watching the camels race was already something, but watching with all the village present, was something else . The kids were running, the women were singing and the men were supporting any of their friends conducting an animal. We were here, sharing these moments of joy and peace with all these families and we exchanged simple but true words. This was definitively another view of Chingetti turned in direction of the future instead of the past.
