Here is a story about Mauritania that was headlined on Yahoo. It concerns Mauritania's second biggest city, Nouadhibou. Until this last year, there was no road connecting the two cities. Now there is, and it goes right by my house. If you check out the story, you will see a picture of men wearing the long flowing white robes, called in Hassiniya Arabic dra'ahs, which are typical clothing here.
