St Louis to Rosso and the Mauritanian border 2
The route from St Louis to the border crossing at Rosso ( Sénégal ) takes about 3 hours on mostly good roads.
Below are some of the pictures I took from our taxi windows as we left the barren areas of Northern Sénégal
and approached the lush rice growing areas near the River Sénégal.

A herd of sheep with their shepherd and possibly his son

Thatched farm buildings looked neat and tidy

Massive barns for storing rice

Lush green fields of rice .. in strict contrast to the barren landscape we had just left
