Sudanese Time

A government official passed away, so David tried to go to the funeral today. Its starting time was 3:00, so he had the driver drop him off at 3:00. He found about 300 chairs set up and 9 people sitting in them. He was the tenth. Half an hour later 5 more people had arrived. At 3:45, the people with the sound system arrived and started setting up. At 4:00, about 10 more people arrived, and David's driver returned to pick him up.

Reminded us of the wedding we attended. We arrived a little bit after we had been told it would start, and for about an hour it was just us and the families of the bride and the groom.
