Oooh . . . a little chance for us to write a post about two things that we love: German cars, and the people who love them. And why, perchance, would this be interesting in the slightest to you, especially if you don’t like classic cars? Well, number one, it’s about history (and we are all about that.) Number two, isn’t it just the best thing when we all get along as a species? And isn’t it even better when we get to discover the undiscovered from out of nowhere? We think so.
Here’s an example of “how the world should work.” People in Sudan’s capital city, Khartoum, have a love for German cars. So much so that there’s a dedicated “Mercedes Street” and a Volkswagen “Beetle Club”. Watch the delightful video, below and embrace just one of the things that make us human.
Even better, Khartoum has a fascinating historical background, with a blend of African, Arab, and Islamic cultures. It was the meeting point of the White Nile and Blue Nile, which played a significant role in Sudan’s history and development. Khartoum is a melting pot of cultures, with a diverse population representing various ethnic groups. Visitors can immerse themselves in Sudanese traditions, taste local cuisine, and witness the vibrant arts and crafts scene. See below.
