St Louis to Rosso and the Mauritanian border        
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.

The barren countryside of Northern Sénégal

With the occasional group of farm buildings

With good long range eyesight .. trees are easily counted on the fingers of one hand !
