Open Air Market



The open air market in Shambat Village in the Sudan. This looks much the same as the markets look today. Sort of nice buying produce from independent proprietors who actually grew the food.

  1. But I'll bet the roofs are tarps or some other material other than grass.

  3. I love the old pictures of Africa. They have an air of the unknown. It is important to remember, however, that "Africa" is a large umbrella term, and what is a common sight in one area may be completely different than another. I lived in West Africa for a couple years, and the differences between cultures of Niger and Central African Republic can be as great as those between New Hampshire and New Mexico.

    1. I have to agree. We have a family at our church from Tanzania, and they had never seen Kinta cloth before they came to the States. And don't get Clara started on Kwanza!
