"Souq" ist das arabische Wort für Markt, beinhaltet aber so vieles mehr! Der größte Markt Khartoums ist der "Souq Omdurman" im Westen der Stadt. Er besteht aus unzählbar vielen verschachtelten Gassen, die nach Verkaufsprodukten gegliedert sind. Sei es Obst, Kleidung, Schmuck, Folklor, Leder, unechtes Haar - hier lässt sich alles finden, was das Herz begehrt. 
Wir nehmen uns einen Tag Zeit diesen Markt zu erkunden und erleben ein völlig neues  Shoppingerlebnis.
The Arabic word "souq" translates to market, but it means so much more! Khartoum's biggest market is called "Souq Omdurman" and it is located in the western part of the city. Lots of small and intricated streets add up to a place where one can find anything, whether it'd be fruit, clothes, jewellery, folklor, leather or fake hair.
Spending a day exploring the souq is a whole new experience.



  1. We really like the blog, the pictures are beautiful and we're so jealous! I hope you get a chance to visit the Maygoma Orphanage and if you write about it, don't forget to mention the two awesome people that showed you it :P enjoy the rest of your trip - Khadija & Leena ( we just realised we didn't exchange names haha)

    Also if you guys are still interested there's a charity that gives clothes to the needy and here's the number -00249128220735

  2. Thank you so much guys!
    Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to visit the orphanage, but we still found somebody that really needed our clothes.
    It was nice to meet you :)
