El Obeid

Overview

Introduction

The self-proclaimed "gum arabic capital of the world," El Obeid is a fairly large desert city (pop. 423,000). It has a small history museum, two markets and, interestingly enough, one of the largest cathedrals in Africa (attend a Sunday service, even if you're not particularly religious). Plan one night. 230 mi/365 km southwest of Khartoum.
