During my time in Khartoum I went to Omdurman, a city just North of Khartoum, where every Friday, just before sunset, there's a dancing ceremony. It is held in the cemetery next to the tomb of Sufi leaders.
The cemetery fills up with spectators of all kinds and locals try to find the tourist to have a chat and practice their English and Chinese.
It was a wonderful experience and once again showed the generosity and hospitality of the Sudanese!
