For those of you who are wondering how to pronouce Nouakchott, it’s something like this: Nuh-walk-shot. French influences, you see, which means that a place named wuh-dan is spelled Oudane, and a dish pronounced chebojen is spelled tcheibojene, or something like that. Gotta love those phonetics!

I’ll post some pictures when I figure out how to do so. As you can tell by the look of my blog and my lack of fun “extras” like a blogroll or a “what I’m reading” list on the side, I have no idea what I’m doing or how to do it! We’ll get there eventually, insha’allah as they say round here.
