Basic bread

Buying bread; a simple task everywhere else in the world that we’ve been, but not in Sudan. With the cost of living rising uncontrollably, and the price of bread tripling last year being able to buy daily basics is an increasing challenge. Following a wave of protests (about bread, and more…) the price of bread has been brought back down to 1p per bun with government subsidies, however you have to be prepared to queue for hours to get it. If you’re able to pay the unsubsidised price, you can have the privilege of going to a different bakery with no queue.

The man we are staying with has enjoyed sending me to get his 1p bread as he knows I’ll be invited straight to the front of the queue.

We have to say that these hot, soft, white bread rolls are very tasty and worth the wait!
