Wadi Halfa, Sudan

Town feels sleepy and slower than usual today. Little commerce happens in the market as many vendors pack the tiny, crude stalls, but few buyers, almost none of them women, purchase any of the cheap products. A local explained that Nubian women stay at home cooking and taking care of the house and children. They ‘don’t need to get out’, he said.
