Final Sudan shots!
Thanks. To Amr for the wedding invitation. To numerous Sudanis for the great warm welcome. And especially to YSL & the Edrissi family for their great hospitality, food and much more. A most memorable four days!
A few final shots to finish off the series.
Khartoum is famous as the meeting point of the Blue & White Nile rivers. MB took this shot from the top floor cafe of the Corinthia Hotel (aka Burj Libya Complex). Recent rains had left the glass facade very dirty so poor quality shot. But you get the picture!
Al Nilin Mosque on the Nile River. Sudan’s most famous mosque. MB had a particularly interesting inter-faith conversation with the resident Imam who did his best to convert MB to the ‘final word of God’. A very nice guy it must be said and he & MB got on like a house-on-fire.
At the Ozone Cafe. MB could easily have been in London or Paris or HX as he sat with Sudani friends at this great cafe situated on a traffic island in the middle of Khartoum. Trees and other dense vegetation block out the noise and sights of the traffic. A really beautiful oasis with seriously delicious food.
The most noisy meeting of two groups of females that MB ever heard! 3 Friends met 3 other friends. And it was like they were reunited after years of separation, with both groups thinking that the other group had died. And suddenly, by sheer chance, they happened across each other at the cafe. A few tables away from MB at the Ozone. Deafening!
If you are a Bob Marley fan you will recognise the colours. MB & Sudani friends at the Ethiopian Cafe. MB’s first shot is like a Renoir or Monet painting. Incredible skill with the camera. Bullshit MB, its just a blurry shot!
