My trip to Africa has been delayed a month which means I'll leave early in March. Because of this I'd like to extend the Sew Giving Bee another month which makes the ending date February 29th. A huge thank you to all the lovely people that have sent their handmade baby blankets, the notes have been very touching to read.
Nouakchott is a coastal city on the west coast of Africa. The first week or so of my trip will be spent here and then we will be off to the desert.
The desert in Mauritania is beautiful with it's many faces; from rolling dunes, flat sand scapes and Savannah's. We stopped at this little encampment when I was there last. The camels were milked and we then drank some very fresh warm milk out of a wooden bowl.
