It was tough. It was really tough.http://mdhiro.com/mauritania-3ーis-it-a-private-taxi-or-what/
As is same with everything, the first period is the most difficult time. Although I was aware, it was still tough.
Just to reiterate the background: I arrived Mauritania (the detail is here) →Right after that, Ramadan started when I had to go through a lot of administrative procedures (the detail is here) →There was no public transportation (bus, subway, official taxi, etc.)→ It is quite hot here (30-40℃) and difficult to walk →…
There was the only way, which was private taxi! I thought it would not be that difficult as I used to take private taxis frequently back in Mongolia….yes, I was wrong.
The life has several, if not many, turning points. And the decision to move in Mauritania, west African country totally unknown to me, was definately one of the turning points.
In this regrad, this entry deals with analysis of a decision making process. I will narrow down from (1) Why Africa, (2) Why West Africa and to (3) Why Mauritania, hoping this will serve in some way for me to unpack my past in the future, and ideally for someone else to have an insight on how a decision of one person’s life turning point was made.
