Library and Desert Trip

One of the main reasons for our visit to Chinguetti is so that my husband can work with ancient manuscripts. This time we visited another library and just like the previous one, this one holds books that have been passed down through generations over centuries. You can see there some gorgeous ancient calligraphy and hand made covers, true works of art! As for the contents of these writings, well I will let my husband worry about that! We had time for tea and brief visit to the sand dunes near the city. It was rather foggy and the ground was a bit wet due to recent rain which as you can imagine is quite unusual for this area.
