The Republic of The Sudan
February 5, 2020
Dear Friends and Fellow Explorers,
If I close my eyes and eliminate the National Geographic video team and a few dedicated archaeologists, I can imagine that today, I alone “discovered” the Meroë Pyramids (270 BCE- 450 CE).
Tourists are a rarity here, even though the pyramids built by the Kushite royalty are the most visited site in Sudan. (“Most visited” is a relative term.)
Today it is just me and my guide, the rising sun, the setting sun and the hills and sands of the Nubian desert.
