To finish every week travel-inspired, I tell you every Friday about one of the photos of my blog’s header.
This week, I’ve selected a photo taken in December 2007 in Mauritania. You can see a fennec chilling in the shadow under a chair.
Fennec foxes live in the Sahara desert and are wild animals; but this one had been adopted by a family running a guesthouse in Nouakchott, the Mauritanian capital. The fennec was still a little wild though, and difficult to approach. Hence my joy when I managed to take this photo!
