Visitation at the Desert Villages

One of the villages just at the foothill of a hill.

Local Sudanese young girls in their Eid Festival clothings.

Happy to see a foreigner taking their picture.

Old model of a bicycle still widely used in Sudan. I know how to ride a bike, just that it's not the right time.

A lecture has begun.

Oops! Am I in the wrong house? Where's my mommy?

It's their custom to slaugther an animal during this festival period in the midst of happiness with so many guests at their house. They did invite us to stay for a meal (goat dishes of course). Not compulsory though.

Cute girl!

The same goat where they are de-skinning it now.

Hee-haw! Hee-haw! Hee-haw!
It was making so much of noise, maybe was left out of the happiness in the surrounding.

The guy in white robe happens to be working at our site where, i think, he reports to our guy in red jacket.

Nice of the house owner to treat all of us to a bottle of Fanta Orange and Coke.

The baby was nicely wrapped up to avoid catching a cold during the winter season.

mountainous pictures, next change....

for us, it looked real fun but they do suffer during the hot summer where everything is so dry

that's all they have but they still live their life as it is. strong hearts indeed
