TBT: 1981 Khartoum Visit

Currently I'm reading a book set in Sudan, Leila Aboulela's, Lyrics Alley. It takes me back to this visit long ago, a time when mustaches were in vogue.

I also recall that the Sudan National Museum had fabulous displays of Sudanese and Egyptian artifacts with only one sleepy guard at the entrance.  It was amazing to see such treasures out where you could admire and touch if you were inclined. We didn't steal anything, but we could have.

In addition to that facial hair, don't you love the socks that men and boys wore back then? They look so strange now to me especially on that 13 yr old long legged son of mine.

Way back when...
