  A Gezira souk
by mafi_moya

If you want to experience the true Sudanese hospitality and traditional rural life then come to Gezira. At least that's what people from Gezira say anyway!

This is the agricultural centre of Sudan, a fertile triangle between the Blue and White Niles, just south of Khartoum, most famous for its cotton. Friendly villages, green fields, and the delightfully quaint old town of Wad Medani are the main reasons to come.

Whenever I was sick of Khartoum this was an ideal escape - relaxing and laid back and a very different experience, yet just a few hours away. See my Gezira page for a bit more.
