Sudan, January 2006
Eid meal-in-waiting, Abri. Abri was my first stop after arriving by ferry at Wadi Halfa in the far north. The Nile here presented a major contrast to built-up Egypt. I arrived in Sudan not long before Eid al Adha (Eid al-Kebir or the Feast of the Sacrifice, commemorating Abraham's near sacrifice of his son), one of the major Muslim feast-days. Lots of unfortunate sheep and goats were changing hands at the time.
