Wandering Around Khartoum City

Flat land in Khartoum city and not many tall buildings on this side of the city.

Across the bridge, on the other side of the river, is the Omdurman area.

This was our dessert after a dinner. It's the Tutti Frutti. Not many places we can go to relax in Khartoum.

Opted for chocolate topping as well on the tutti frutti ice-cream purportedly from Italy lah, dunno how true also. There were 3 different flavours, one of it is Vanilla, (something) cheesecake and one more (forgotten). Cost me 6 Sudanese Dinar.

This little corner is selling drinks e.g. coffee and tea. Dare not picture of the counter that was selling ice-cream. Do not want the lady to scream.

This are the usual vegetables found in Khartoum city. Not much of a choice. For those greeny leaves type, you have to know where to buy it.

After taking this picture, I took another one which is of the fruit stall towards the left side (if you do notice the yellow colour mangoes on the left). A policeman seated nearby told me to delete the picture. Not permitted to take picture and this is what we face here.

Went to the Filipino community gathering opposite of Afra shopping centre (the only one in Sudan).

The Filipinos will have basketball competitions or friendlies on every Thursday and Friday nights.

My colleagues, having lunch together at Overseas restaurant. This is our usual place for either our lunch or dinner nowadays.

This was lunch time and it seems that many people came to know about this eatery place already judging from the crowd.

For those of you who have been to Sudan, you really need to read this Italian blogger's blog posting on Sudan. It's so hilarious - You know you lived in Khartoum when...
