Tourist cockroaches

23rd August 2014 by Helen

Today’s drive out towards Port Sudan first took us past the Meroe Pyramids. We noticed lots of shredded tyres decorating the roadside and a few small shrubs or trees but otherwise there was little to break up the flat desert. The occasional village of a few small houses tended to blend in with the desert, with the exception of the ornately designed mosques.

Our plan was to travel as far as we could today and we reached Atbara where we stopped at the Nile Tourist Hotel, one of the places listed on our SatNav (Tracks 4 Africa). When the power cut hit we discovered a new game – stamping on cockroaches!!
