Nubian village life by Nicky

On our way down through northern Sudan we meandered through some picturesque Nubian villages where life hasn't changed for hundreds of years and loved the whitewashed walled compounds with their colourful doorways set amongst date palm groves and brilliant green fields along the Nile.

Apparently the white donkeys of this area are the strongest in Sudan and therefore much sought after.

In every village large pottery water jars are arranged by the roadside for thirsty travellers.

A group of brightly clad women stopped to greet us on their way to a wedding.
