8th December We reached the Tropic of Cancer  around noon - identified by GPS, and marked by a cairn and a line of rocks in the desert . A mile and a half further South we came across a  signpost for the Tropic . At last it feels like we are in Africa, not Europe.  We filled up with diesel at the last fuel station before the border - much cheaper on this side - and tried to spend the last of our coin dirahms. We bushcamped below a huge  sand-dune , where we drank the last of our alcohol  - we cannot take it into Mauritania due to strict shiria law.
