This picture isn't really from Sudan: it's the lobby of our hotel in Cairo. But it's got a bunch of stuff in it that you see in Sudan, too. The curtains are this tent material that is used for outdoor parties and for fencing off construction sites. Right under the window is a hookah, which Sudanese men smoke, reminding us all forcibly of Alice in Wonderland. Some of my classmates from the American school go out together to smoke them, too, which I think is illegal, at least for the girls.
