Picnic Beduin Style

There are many french nationals residing here in Mauritania, recently we made friends with a really nice family and they invited us to join them in a picnic at the beach. This was a fairly new experience for us and a very interesting one too. They invited people from different backgrounds, Spanish, Mauritanian, French, Lebanese, American-Colombia (us of course) and they hosted everyone at the beach inside and outside a big bedouin tent. They had some locals cook a whole goat which was served with couscous and salad. Children running around, Adults talking in at least 3 o 4 languages, babies crying (it was well past Gabriel's bed time, but no worries they brought a little portable crib for us. )Such a wonderful evening, forever grateful!
