So I got a good solid 4 hours of sleep with my surprise roommate Michael (who slept through the rest of the day’s adventures) and then headed out with 12 others from our group (including Kam from Toronto who I met last night) and saw some neat things around Khartoum. We needed to wait until we got our photography permits to leave, but there’s still a number of rules, like we can’t take photos of government buildings, police or army forces, and infrastructure like bridges. Also, I don’t think we can take a picture of the spot where the Blue Nile and White Nile merge into the Nile. Odd, eh?
I’ve also got a sim card, I think $23 has given me a sim card and unlimitedish data for the next month in Sudan. If anyone wants to pay a fortune to call or text me, +249 907789991, lol. Just Facebook me!
Overall it’s been a good day. I tried some new food and a burger of unknown meat. Breakfast at the hotel was pretty good too. Lots of fun meeting new people!
Tomorrow myself and a new friend are going to go to some sort of Greek Club where we can run and go for a swim. I think there’s a mixer tonight too for meeting more people…

Very brave of you! A burger of unknown meat…..lol that’s my boy. Great pictures sleep them coming.
That should have been “keep” them coming.
Just a guess – the new food you tried is Falafel – deep fried ground chickpeas. Pretty good!
I’m pretty sure you should be wearing a hat to protect your bald head from the African sun…. Excited to follow you along via your blog – please send pics of any scalp sunburns 😛
