We're looking at another day with a high of about 20 degrees here. On the whole I'd rather be in Nouakchott. "Mauritania" and "chess" does not make for a particularly good google search unless you're into stamp collecting. And, no, the 1984 World Chess Championship does not seem to have had anything to do with Mauritania--they just did the stamp. If I were Dave Barry, however, I might point out that "The Rooks of Mauritania" would make an excellent name for a rock band.
