  • While traveling in Sudan often went in the toilets of mosques, because there you are sure to find them. In this mosque I only visited the bathrooms which were sufficiently cleaned but from entering it. Too bad because I was expecting it to Khartoum things were different from the rest of the country. Outside the mosque three women of various ages were asking for alms those present that they had gone to celebrate the Friday prayer
