Pyramids – In Sudan

On my next visit to Sudan – a month after my first….  I was commissioned to document the JT President’s visit to JTI – Sudan.  With temperatures up to 47 degrees, my client had arranged for me to do some site seeing to the Sudanese Pyramids (who would have thought?)  On arrival at the Pyramids, we headed off on foot – Monem, my tour guide and I…  Well, half way up, my feet were on fire from the heat coming off the sand….  It was almost unbearable.  I had to run into one of the pyramids to get the ‘hot’ off my feet.  Just before our arrival, a bus of Scouts were on the same tour – it was good to be surrounded by little people.  From there, we went to the Royal City ruins and guess who had just arrived to the city – yes, the Scouts…

Again – the heat was just too much for me to handle…  for me to cut a tour short because of the heat, is unheard of… Well – I never…  I was so hot that I was even getting goose bumps….  I thought I may have got a slight case of heat stroke….  I managed to see the Royal Bath and the Sauna (really?  a Sauna) after that – it was Gallas (Arabic for Finished) for me….  Here are some images of the Sudanese people, the Royal City and the Pyramids – next time – I will arrange for a sunset tour.

A special thank you to Mortada, the tour driver who eventually managed to find diesel and getting me safely back to the hotel and to Monem for his special attention to detail on the tour.
