Night life

Dongola, Northern, Sudan, May 2010
From Wikipedia: Dongola (also spelled Dunqulah or Dunqula, Arabic دنقلا, and formerly sometimes known as Al 'Urdi) is the capital of the state of Northern (or asch-Schamaliyya (arabisch ‏الشماليةasch-Schamāliyya)in Sudan, on the banks of the Nile.
The region is called Nubia.

With different busses we followed the Nile and stopped in oasis towns or villages. At the end of May it was so HOT there, even at night. But the people were so welcoming, it was a pleasure to walk around and sog up the desert towns atmosphere. Everybody seems to know each other.
