Sudan: where is the bridge? + more floods, more photos

The question is “where is the bridge?: “Back at the flood, the officer spent two minutes looking at my card, then said “No photos. I think there is a bridge here”. I did a quick scan of the landscape – 360 degrees of flat, flat plains, flood water and a distant mosque. No bridge. “Where is the bridge,” I asked? “Down there,” he said, pointing down the flat, flat, featureless road. “But there isn't a bridge there,” I said, grinning madly. (Quick tip. In situations like these, never get angry. It doesn't work.) “Yes,” he answered. “But this is a bridge area.”

Also, look at photos from flash floods in Sudan, which have killed 20 people
