Just a well traveled average guy who's chill, educated, and enjoys a good time. Not a blogger, just a genius. A cup of tea is a plus.
Donuts! The Sudanese make these delicious donuts and serve them with sweet tea. They remind me of beignets, but with real sugar, rather than powdered sugar. After a rest day of being fat and lazy, we need to get back on the bike. Not only did I chow down on a ton of donuts, but my lunch included a whole box if chocolate chip cookies. Today we are biking 165km into Ethiopia. The landscape and temperature will change dramatically as we climb into the mountains. I am excited to get out of the desert heat. I have found it hard to do anything after a day of biking… Difficult to even read. I sit as still as possible in the shade of the truck until close to sunset when it gets cooler. Entering Ethiopia also means beer! Alcohol is illegal in Sudan. My guide book says the punishment for being caught with booze in Sudan is 40 lashes. Ouch!
This is a revolution of democracy and a great victory for human rights — and the more we recognize that, the more Tunisia can shine as an example for the Western and the Arab world!
