North of Rachid we followed a wadi for a rather long time. In this wadi it was possible to drive rather fast. At this part of the track we saw a lot of traditional tents of the Moorish nomads, mostly in the shade of the palmtrees in the wadi.

There were also some boys with small herds of goats and sheep around. And of course we saw camels. There was even a pickup in the wadi. It was the only car, we saw at this route of 350 KM, where rarely vehicles are seen between Tidjikja and Chinquetti.
