Sudan: Souk Obdurman

Obdurman is the oldest part of Khartoum with a huge area of bazaars, souqs, and marketplaces. Many of the Sudanese and other North African specialties are on display here – heaps of dates, spices, lime and vegetables, grains and beans, lamb, hibiscus tea, candies and sweets, gold and jewelry, and much more. And an incredible place for people watching and observing local customs. All the traders and sellers were welcoming and happy to be in pictures.
