H is for Hotel
Not the typical hotel. But a possibility to spend the night in a desert town in Sudan. We had a seperate room. It was so hot in it, much better to sleep outside. Wadi Halfa, June 2010.
While traveling in Africa northbound, now by bus, we stopped several times in Northern Sudan in small towns on the Nile River for one or two nights. In Wadi Halfa we had to wait for the ferry to cross Lake Nubia (Lake Nassa) to Egypt.
In Abri, a small town on the Nile. There was just one hotel, so no choice. But we had a place in front of our room to sleep under the open sky. A relief from the heat. At daytime the heat is incredible. I have never been in a hot place like this before.
This is my ABC Wednesday. To watch more go to this site from Mrs. Nesbitt.
