In the centre of Nouakchott, in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, Sunday sees the gatherings of the small but nonetheless not insignificant Christian population.
There are no problems in the city, I’ve been here 18 months and the two different religions live happily alongside each other.
I was gutted I couldnt get the little girl in a better light, she looked so pretty in her finery.
Like most West African countries, there is a large migrant population, here in Mauritania Malians are the biggest single group, but there are plenty of Senegalese and Ghanaians and its these that primarily make up the church goers.
Sunday mass is well attended, the day I passed, there were easily 200 people in the large church.
