My experiences in the marginal markets in the eastern Sudan were useful because I found ways that helped me to get through the eastern borders, escaping the hell on the other side of the mountain to Eritrea, the Red Sea paradise.
Eritrea, the Red Sea state had the best European climate and my daughter found its pleasure to run after and catch the mist that was on the air. I am missing it so much! In addition, what really impresses me until now is that my daughter did not forget the Eritrean tigrinya although she speaks English, Danish, some German, French and Arabic. See her web log at Nice Kids Fun!
I am preparing her to be nominated an Ambassador in Asmara;-) as a gift of love to my city, the capital city of the Red Sea Paradise!
Most of those who opposed the Sudanese (NIF)'s military regime fled to Egypt at the North because Egypt is a well-known neighbouring country to my homeland. However, I understand that Egypt had played the negative role in the Sudanese modern history as a conquering neighbour.
Yes, in spite of a childhood memorials I have in mind of a big picture in the sitting room in my home, signed by the then Egyptian President, Mohammed Najeeb says, "Keep this agreement by your unity!" I think the picture was signed during the independence agreements in 1954. I may need to sharpen my memory and my pen at this point ;-)
The Egyptians regional colonizing powers have their influence in the Sudanese life from the date we knew the cine and the culture. I am not speaking about the nice people by the way. I am speaking about politics. I knew Egypt since I was a child from my childhood readings, thanks to my father, and the Egyptian cinema.
In addition, I have one memorial, which remained with me here since I was very young. It was one of the famous Egyptian singers at that time, Abdul-Haleem Hafiz, with his nice dedication to me and his signature. You can review it on "Politics, Business and Love" if you look for it. To review other photos look them up on this website using the search tool.
While I deeply engaged with arts and culture, one of my friends had received a photo from the Egyptian President Jamal Abdul-Nasser with his signature.
Well, I liked every inch of the Eritrean soil. I enjoyed climbing the heights and scrolling to the valleys where I enjoyed a real love with the trees, the stones, the sand and the fallen (arkokabai). I sang with the water while it runs through the Gash from the western heights to Kasala in Sudan, as if I wanted the waves to take it to the other people I love through the broders.
However, the borders got into troubles when the Sudanese opposition's groups launched their armed struggle from Eritrea and through the western borders. To be continued at Political Problems in Sudan
