Alternative tourism destinations: Nouadhibou graveyard – a unique phenomenon / un fenomen unic

[english version below]

Nouadhibou , un orasel cu specific pescaresc din Nordul Mauritaniei , Africa , este mai mult cunoscut ca cel mai mare cimitir de nave maritime. Datorita coruptiei oficilialilor portuari acest golfulet a devenit locul preferat de a te descotorosi de o nava de care numai ai nevoie , sau vrei sa o faci pierduta din diverse motive. Astazi golful este locul de moarte a unui numar mai mare de 3oo de nave , adunate in timp , cele mai vechi si mai erodate si-au croit drum pana pe nisipul plajelor , iar aditiile mai recente inca stau in larg la ancora fara vreun suflet la bord plutind singuratice sau legate in serie mai multe  , asteptand sa se roada lantul ancorei care inca le mai tine pe pozitie. Astazi a ajuns un loculet destul de fascinant , demn de scenarii pentru filme postapocaliptice.
