Nouakchott is the capital city of Mauritania, but where is "Saint Louis" ?

Distance sign from road nr. 61 in Ísafjörður, Iceland.
image hosted on flickr


As you can see there are two ways to get to Reykjavík. You can turn right just after this sign to go on road nr. 60, it's the shorter route but is only open during summers and takes you over some primitive dirt tracks that haven't changed for 50 years. Or you can continue straight on road 61 which is open all year and has a paved surface all the way. The longest distance on the sign is to Akureyri, my home town, and I regularly make that drive like every other month or so.

Couldn't find the one indicating Paris though.

I've never heard of Saint Louis. I think it would be better to sign Dakar (if necessary at all).

Actually it's quite well known city in Western Africa and it's first bigger city after Mauritanian border. If you would have plan to drive through Mauritania and on to other countries along this road it would make sense for you. I would sign Dakar also.

Norway is an incredibly long country, when you're in Oslo, you're half way to Roma. I think it's a great way to show how long Norway is.

ok, it is not that long, but it is very long indeed. when you're in Oslo, you're half way to Milano (air distance)

Actually, Oslo - Kirkenes is 2.425 km if you keep within the Norway proper (cutting through Sweden would save 500 km).

Oslo - Roma is 2.510 km, so the comparison works out quite well.

There it is:



Autovía A-1 between Alsasua and Etxegarate, just after the service station.

There was also one indicating Lisbon and Algeciras in the opposite direction but I can't find that...

Saint-Louis du Sénégal, the oldest French colony in Africa, and oldest European style municipality in Africa too! Inhabitants of Saint-Louis du Sénégal had French citizenship (unlike people in the other French colonies who were just legally "indigenous people"). They are still proud of it today.
