This is just to let you know that our recent trip to Sudan would not have been anything as good if we had not had you to show us around. In fact very soon after meeting you we looked on you more as a friend than as a tour guide. Good fun to be with as well as being extremely interesting and informative about all aspects of Sudan. The fact of course that you speak such good English is always of prime importance to a visitor in a foreign country. The friendliness of the people in Sudan too was very evident."
I have always wanted to visit Sudan ever since I read "The Blue Nile" and "The White Nile" and to have actually been in Khartoum and have a boat trip to the confluence was fascinating, and of course to visit the famous Omdurman. What a history Sudan has.
We also loved visiting the Sixth Cataract of the Nile in such a beautiful green and mountainous setting, not to mention spending time at the temple complexes of Naqa and Musawarat. These sites were made even more special by being off-road and having them to ourselves.
In our four days in Sudan we had three spectacular sunsets - two on the Nile and the third one at the pyramids of Meroe. It was a magical experience - sitting on a sand-dune each, quiet, spiritual with nobody else around to spoil the atmosphere.
It is such a shame that most people associate Sudan with tragedy and suffering and therefore do not consider the country as a place to visit.
This is not to deny that it very unfortunately DOES exist in certain areas, and the horror of it is all one ever hears about in the media. Similarly I have just come back from Kashmir and had the most wonderful time. But with both places - on hearing where I was planning to go, the question was usually "Why would you want to go to Sudan" or "Why would you want to go to Kashmir? Is it safe?" The same thing applied to my own country, Ireland, during the troubled times there.
