serving 'special tea' dotted around and non-alcoholic beers are available, but in general it's more hassle than it's worth to track down alcohol during a short visit. For long-termers, however, the market does exist - via diplomatic bags and other routes... apparently. Sleep Note that a 5% tourism tax and 15% VAT may well be added to your bill - Khartoum's hotels are inconsistent in telling you about these taxes in advance, and (especially for cheaper hotels) inconsistent in paying this money

The suburb was named after General Gordon (Charles George Gordon) who was the hero of the eight-month siege of Khartoum in the Sudan in the late 19th century. Most of the names in the suburb relate to General Gordon, the armies he served with, and their sphere of operation. Trams ran to Gordon Park connecting it with Brisbane until they were progressively withdrawn from use, finally ceasing all operations on 13 April 1969. In the mid 1980s residents pushed to retain the locality name after concern that it could fade out of use. Early service MacMichael was graduated with a first from Magdalene College, Cambridge.
