Happy fridays at Khartoum Beach

Hier c'etait le vendredi ! le jour ferie ou tout le monde se relaxe et va a la priere ! J'ai profite de cette journee pour partir a la plage... euh plutot sur les rives du Nil en crue. Cette saison des pluie fait sortir le fleuve de son lit et le transforme en un "presque" lac aux rivages paisibles ou une masse de jeunes enfants partent y faire trempette sans trop de risques.

Juste a cote de cette plage improvisee, une horde jeunes garcons originaires de Nubie gerent une "station" de lavage de voiture et de bus. Le lavage se fait juste sur le bord du Nil aux risques et perils du proprio ainsi peut retrouver sa voiture embourbee dans le Nil en deux temps trois mouvements....

D'autres scenes "vendredicales" ( dominicales) sont visibles egalement dans l'egout du bidonville d'acote. L'eau ruisselle vers le Nil et attire donc plein de poissons et par consequence plein de pecheurs...

Mais la plus belle scene qu'on peut voir le vendredi est celles des amoureux "envendredie" (endimanche) qui se promenent sur le pont lors du coucher de soleil...

allez treve de mots je vous laisse avec les photos !

Zied,
I have read all your "anecdotes" about Sudan both in French & in English. I am Sudanese but I live in Tunisia & I speak both Frenh & English fluently. I chose to put my comments in English since I am sure many Sudanese who read them will agree. I have lived all my life in Sudan, moved to Tunisia only 2 years ago-for work purposes- and I can clearly see that you are viewing Sudan from a total subjective-unfair view!
Sudan is a very beautiful country, but I must assume that as many ex-pats you are viewing things superficially and in a very shallow manner. you haveto know the Sudanese values & what to appreciate, what to see, what to look for and most important where to look and where to go!!!
I am not talking about this story in-particular, but many others as well. As I understood from your page, you are involved in Humanitarian work in Sudan, my advice to you is to try to understand the national context of things!!! Because otherwise you would be waisting your time!
I agree with Tarik's comment on the "Blue Nile story" And by the way I live in Tunis for two yaers now & we are not far behind!!!
Try to understand the national context & to really know Sudan. Its an amazing place!

Dear Layla,
I thank you for your visit and comment and I will be glad if you can give your opinion and comments on every post I write about Sudan.

I also welcome the Sudanese readers of my blog and Im sure they agree with you especially that I personally do.

I concede that my opinion is totally biased and these posts are totally subjective and may be unfair... but I'm not claiming to be fair or to be objective.

Im not also comparing Sudan to Tunisia nor claiming that Tunisia is a nicer country. Im enjoying my Life in Sudan and Im glad that I had the opportunity to visit this indeed beautiful country.

I can understand that the way I depict Sudan might not please you. It happened also to me when I see the way people describe Tunisia or Lebanon sometimes. But I do believe in freedom of speech and I invite you to use yours whenever you feel like it. More importantly I invite you to share your views and experience in Tunisia which Im sure will be of a great interest to many Tunisian bloggers.

Im grateful that you offered me the opportunity to clarify my position and the way I look to things. Thank you !

تونس: كارثة الإيقاف التحفظي

الإيقاف التحفظي والايداع بالسجن قبل إصدار الحكم يجب ان يكون الاستثناء وليس القاعدة. هذا الإجراء المعمم بالمحاكم التونسية هو سبب اكتظاظ السجون(50%من السجناء هم مواطنين موقوفين ولا يوجد حكم ضدهم) وثابت علميا انه يؤثر على مجرى العدالة
بشكل كبير ويؤثر سلبا على الأحكام فنادرا ما يحكم الموقوف بالبراءة او بمدة اقصر من التي قضاها تحفظيا . هذه الممارسات تسبب كوارث اجتماعية واقتصادية و تجعل المواطن يحقد على المنظومة القضائية و يحس بالظلم و القهر

رئيس حكومتنا " يركب التونسية"

فما قولة شعبية في السودان تتقال وقتلي واحد يمشي و ما يرجع او فريق كرة قدم يخسر في تصفيات كأس و يلم ادباشه او شخص يتم فصله على العمل . هذه القولة هي " يركب التونسية" ويرجع ظهورها الى الثمانينات لما كانت الخطوط التونسية تربط تونس بالخرطوم. هذه القولة في حد نفسها تلخص مدى الثقة التي تحضى بها تونس و شركاتها والتحدي الموجود لكسب الثقة وتغيير العقليات . فلما سمعت بان رئيس حكومتنا برمج زيارة الى السودان في الأسبوع القادم برفقة مئة رجل اعمال خلت ان حقبة "يركب التونسية" انتهت  وان تونس الجديدة بلد الديموقراطية وضعت السودان وبقية جيراننا في الجنوب في اولاوياتها خاصة بعد غياب طويل عنهم وعلى مؤسساتنا القارية مثل الإتحاد الأفريقي.  ولكن و مثل كل رجال الاعمال و اخواننا في النيجر و السودان و ببوركينا فاصو فوجئت بإلغاء الزيارة بدون اي سبب. وبذلك ، بعد أشهر من العمل والتحضيرات ركب رجال الاعمال و برامج التعاون والمعاهدات المزمع ابرامهاو احلامنا بعلاقات أمتن التونسية مرة اخرى وبقيت صورة تونس على حالها.

Happy 40th!

10 years ago, I wrote this note for my 30th. Today, I am 40 years old and here I am reading what I wrote when I was 30... So much can happen in 10 years that it is hard to look back and remember everything. The feeling of forty is a feeling of reaching "adulthood"... or at least what I imagined adulthood to look like...

Looking back at what happened in the last decade or even in the last 5 years, it is obvious that it is going to be hard to predict what will happen in the next decade. My priorities are however getting clearer:

- Work as hard as I can
- Stay healthy and adopt a healthy lifestyle
- Be the best father I can be and take care of my family
- Read more and get involved in my community

Nothing very exciting as you can see but very important in my eyes...
