Instead of wandering around my garden as I do in the late afternoon in South Africa, my husband and I walk up to the roof of our flat. There we have a view of the whole of Khartoum. Apart from greeting our neighbours going about their daily business down below, we also watch many planes coming in to land at Khartoum Airport. Surprisingly, the airport is a very busy one, with no less than 26 airlines arriving at and departing from the runway. I'll do a post on this later on.
After the downpour of rain we had this week, everything was washed clean and the sky was a clear blue.
Last night I took my camera up there and got many photos. I snapped away at planes arriving and then I spotted this aircarft (photographed above). With the speed it was travelling at, it was definitely not coming in to land in the Sudan. We thought it might have come from Cairo and be on the way to... (we know not where)
