Piranha Fishes for Lunch

When we arrived, we were requested to take our seats at this wonderfully made timber table and chairs. We saw that smoky stuff and thought otherwise.

That smoke was there to deter houseflies. But I think I'll faint before the smoke will have any effect on those houseflies.

The team members that I worked with for our assignments in Sudan.

The sight of a beautiful 'beach'.

This restaurant was set up by a lady owner for over a number of years now.

Here comes our food.

Plenty of deep fried piranha fishes. That's what our Sudanese said. They mentioned that this piranha specie is different from the ones found in the Amazon river.

Just look at the servings.

I think I ate about 5 fishes. Really tasty and there's no murky taste in the fish meat.

Just when we were about to finish those fishes on the table, another plate of fishes was served again. There was about another 10 ....... too much of it already.

And then they brought fruits. I was wondering how many people was the restaurant owner expecting for this table.

After finishing our lunch, we went for a short walk out to the 'beach'.

This 'beach' is the White Nile that flows from Kenya in the south. This is actually a river bank where we are standing on. The width of this river at this point could be about 5 solid kilometres. This is what I call a river.

During the raining season, the river could be as near as the blue building on the left.

Many people from the city will come over here for family gatherings.
