Most shops in Sudan, especially in locally populated areas are very small, with goods displayed as much on the pavement as inside the shops. So, travelling away from the centre of town to the new suburbs like Salama, many varied shops catch your eye.
In Salama district, a new 3rd class suburb south west of Khartoum, I snapped just a sample of shops that could be seen.

What to buy: foodstuff, spices, building materials, anything!

What to pay: prices are usually fixed but some bargaining can be attempted.
