Podor

Some time ago, I had the chance to go to Podor for the day. My friend, Jill, and I went and we found a cool bookstore. I bought a few books in Pulaar- one of Food Transformation and Canning, another on Tree Planting, and another on Environmental Protection. A couple copies for the regional house and a few for me to bring home. The city was beautiful and humble and it was nice to be up by the river.

That’s Mauritania on the other side. It looks much more foresty. Small boats drift lazily back and forth between the two countries bringing over cardboard feed for livestock.

And of course there are remnants of colonial architecture along the waterways. A nice touch.
