Photographer, by Gabriele Ferrazzi. Desert between Sudan and Egypt | Nubia; daily life and cultural heritage | Scoop.it
This photo was made in somewhere in the desert between Sudan and Egypt. We drove all day and we decided to stop for the night, just before God had started to paint the sky. Perfect timing to stop, and perfect timing to shot and represent my passions.

Sudan: A Hundred Books Project Launched

Sudan: A Hundred Books Project Launched | Nubia; daily life and cultural heritage | Scoop.it
Khartoum Press and Publishing Authority (KPPA) greeted the 59th Independence Anniversary of Sudan this month by commissioning a process of printing 100 books in the context of its project of publishing a thousand Sudanese cultural books.

Via Charles Tiayon
Experience Nubia's insight:

The idea of the project also sprang because the cultural activity in Sudan was branded as a consumer more than producer as reflected by the famous proverb: "Cairo writes, Beirut prints and Khartoum reads." Moreover, a Sudanese book almost did not exist as the Sudanese was facing difficulties in the book industry and for this reason our external participation was very weak and pavilions in book fairs abroad exhibit either very few Sudanese books or very old ones. Therefore, we thought of a project to achieve two goals- the first one is to fill in the shortage in the Sudanese library as reports indicated that a house like the University of Khartoum Publishing House, since its foundation in 1967 until the 1980s has published only 60 books, although it is owned and financed by the government.

Nubian Figure Made of Ivory Comes Bearing Gifts - The Root | Nubia; daily life and cultural heritage | Scoop.it
Image of the Week: A sculpted relief from an ancient culture shows the influence that the kingdom of Nubia had on its Assyrian neighbor.
Experience Nubia's insight:

Though the sub-Saharan kingdom of Nubia lay far from the borders of the Mesopotamian heartland of Assyria, its unique culture profoundly influenced the course of the last great phase of the empire’s history.

Levison Wood is an explorer who spent nine months last year walking along the River Nile.
Experience Nubia's insight:
We tend to have a patronising tone when it comes to Africa, but there's a lot we can learn from the place as well, in terms of humanity and the way that people look after each other.
