Hostility Towards Foreigners in SudanDear all,
I'm curious as to whether there is any anti-Western sentiment in Sudan going on right now. If anyone who is living there right now or has recently traveled through northern Sudan (Khartoum north to Wadi Haifa at the Egyptian border) has ideas, I would love to hear them. I recently spoke with a Sudanese friend, who was in Sudan recently with his American wife, and said they ended their trip early due to fears for her safety and that if any foreigners traveling in Sudan weren't extremely careful, they could get into serious trouble very fast. I don't have more details than that so I'm curious as to your opinions. Thanks.

1Right now, our family live in Dongola, Northern State of Sudan very fine for visitors and any journey between Kharoum and Wadi Halfa.
Very peaceful ,,,,,,,

4Just come back from 3 weeks cycling from Wadi Halfa to Khartoum (via Dongola, Karima, Atbara) and visiting nubian villages and archeological sites. People are really friendly, hospitable and delicious.
Major difficulties : very hot (the sun is a killer), the bureaucracy, and the traffic ++ on the road Port Sudan - Khartoum.
Thanks for all who helped me to prepare my trip

5The people of sudan are very friendly I think this is actually the drawing card of any travel in Sudan. I am sorry to tell your american friends that nowhere in US is any populated place so friendly and safe as in Sudan.
