Khartoum rest day
I awoke and made a marathon out out of breakfast. I had 2nd, 3rd and 4th servings and half expected them to kick me out for eating too much of the hotels complimentary breakfast. I spent several hours in the morning tuning and cleaning my bike so that the chain and derailleurs run smoothly. I also talked with Paul, an unexploded ordinances expert, who works in Darfur and Libya destroying landmines and bombs. Later, we went along with the Canadians to a Greek pool in town to go swimming. For dinner we all went to a Syrian restaurant where I got to try Baba ganoush for the first time. Later a local man and friend brought over some date liquor which we tried (I wont write his name because alcohol is very illegal here in Sudan).
