So on Fridays as the sun is slowly slipping beyond the westbank of the Blue Nile … all the fun is to be had with the Sufis, The Dervishes of Khartoum, who converge at the clearing between the modest burial grounds and the Mosque of Hamid al Nil in Omdurman, to whirl. It’s a growing gathering who form an infinite circle. Who chant. And pray. And bless you with their frankincense and prayer beads. There are women in their incandescent drapings. And babies. And children who are all rhythm and rocking. It’s a total trance of religious ecstasy.
Followed by sunset prayers and feeding the needy.
And we were there…
It’s Friday folks. Whirl a little 😉
