SAHARA DESERT ON A BICYCLE. CYCLING from Czech Republic, EUROPE to Guinea-Bissau, AFRICA 2014-2015

Bedouin family waved me and invited me for a very sweet tea :)

Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean a few km from Nouadhibou town in Mauritania, the first town after crossing the border from Western Sahara.

Invisible mechanicians and their visible workshops are ready to help the drivers whose trucks or cars break down. When I came by bicycle this place in the middle of nowhere was empty as the mechanicians live far and deep into the desert who are Bedouins. I looked around and started looking for any water as I was extremely thirsty. I found one family inside, a mother with her children. We made tea. I gave some pasta and tomato sauce and we cooked the meal together :)

Here I had some shade and slept over night. There was no one when I came during the night but I was woken up by a muezzin calling the worshippers to prayer from the minaret and noticed Bedouin people coming from very far somewhere from their homes in the desert.
