Wadi Halfa, Sudan, November 17, 2015
From Abu Simbel, it's a short ferry ride-
to get to Sudan. We waited 2 hours at the Egyptian border and 3 hours at the Sudanese. Once in Sudan, it was more of the same-
We stopped in Wadi Halfa, a small town, to exchange money and get groceries for supper. Because Sudan is so hungry for US dollars, we got 10 Sudanese pounds for $1 US which in reality should have cost $1.64 US! I am on Cook group so it was shepherd's pie and was it good! We bought our beef which was just hanging from a hook that a few flies enjoyed before us, then had it ground elsewhere-
Speaking of Cook's -
thinking of you :)
The locals absolutely love having their picture taken-
Dress is different here. Men wear a variety of head gear from small skull caps, to loosely wrapped, partial turbans. Women wear colorful caftans and of course a matching head scarf. People are super friendly WITHOUT THE HASSLE! I'm going to love this place!
It's a bush camp tonight, then we're off to ......
