Tea is the welcome drink in Mauritania and whenever you visit you'll be invited todrink the three glasses, stronger and bitter the first, like life they say. sweeter the second like love and lighter and softer the third like death.

Meat is the meal if you haven't it any meat on a day for themauritanians is like you hadn't eaten at all.

In the villages you can always find meat, for they will slaughter at least one animal a day or each two days but when you are in the small camps many days might pass without having any meat .
