Sudan:Introduction & General Information

Situated in North East Africa, where the Blue and White Niles merge, lies Sudan, the largest of all the African nations. It, borders no less than nine other countries, and has been the gateway to Africa throughout history.
Sudan is often called ‘Mini Africa’ because it’s (approx) population of 37 million, exist in over a hundred different ethnic groups. It is this diversity of culture that gives rise to Sudan’s unique variety of custom, art,music and food.Khartoum, the capital is dominated by the union of the Blue and White Niles. The three main districts, KhartoumKhartoum North & Omdurman, are each rooted between a different arm of the uniting rivers. Each district has a different history and feel, and together they forma ‘melting pot’ of the country’s cultural diversity. The other 25 states together equal roughly the size of Western Europe.

Sudan’s phtopography ranges from arid desert in the North, hills in the West and East, and swamps and forest in the South.Where ever you visit you will feel the warmth of the Sudanese people and will truly understand why they are renowned for their hospitality.More.....

Hi Hala,
I was one of the lucky people who had the chance to enjoy your excellent job at BaW and you unique sense of humour. Congratulations on that!
As for your blog, you've done a great job in such a short time. You've even put the clock that's becoming a "must" in this blog sessions.
Your description is full of colours and sounds. Sudan has always seemed exotic and mysterious. You are the first Sudanese I've ever met (at least virtually).
Have a nice time blogging!
