    They drink some sort of fermented date brew there. Most Sudanese seem to be sound peeps to me. Laid back.

    Yeah, every person who comes from a country with a civil war is a hotheaded nutter, Chico. No idea how I forgot that.

    A mate of mine has recommended me for the gig. He has been 2 years there now and thinks thè folks are ok. Said the foods pretty good to. Im not going there for a holiday. I will miss my beer for sure but bottom line is BLD wants to get paid and sure as fok doesnt want to get taxed up the ying yang. Hope i like it? Or at least find it tolerable

    I belivee esteemed CJ is our resident expert and hope once un-jettlagged may be able to give you some pointers.
    I think he done his best to bring peace and goodwill to the heathens but its a never ending task,all I'd advise is make sure the health, repatriation insurance is all tip top.The Sudanese I met in Qatar were surly big buggers used as retainers and body guards and took and gave no messing. Their women folk , some with high cheeky bones were mainly horizontal in Bahrain.Like maost of them parts the red bearded religeous Police are like our mods only stricter.


    I've been to some grim sandpits on the Arabian peninisula Dubai Shabby Dhabi Jeddah etc but Sudan moves always a buck too far.
    Good luck matey and you'll have some rare yarns on return, I hope to be in Viangchang next summer if your back for a BL or 3?

    I interviewed three guys today from Sudan in IELTS interviews, as it happens. One was talking about a spot where the White Nile and Blue Nile meet...said it's really beautiful. Lots of these guys seem well educated with great English and good stories.

    Never been there but would guess if North, stay low profile, polite and friendly but not too pally with the locals; and if South no problem, just do your thing and get out before the next flare up.
