I'm a university student that studies here in Sudan, the third largest country in Africa. Let me tell you about just a few of the struggles that I have to endure on a daily basis;

我是一名大学生,在非洲第三大国家苏丹学习。让我告诉你一些我每天必须忍受的挣扎;

Electricity? What's that? I'm literally typing this post as I'm going through my daily 8 hour power cut. Can you imagine living in a country where it's 41°C (105.8°F) because we're in the Sahara desert and not having electricity for a good portion of your day?

电?那是什么?当我每天停电八小时的时候,我真的在写这篇文章。你能想象我们生活在一个41摄氏度(105.8华氏度)的国家吗?因为我们在撒哈拉沙漠,一天的大部分时间都没有电。

Water? Most houses here get their water pumped to them through a motor which is, yep you guessed it, electric powered. No electricity? No running water too.

水?这里的大多数房子都是通过马达来抽水的,没错,你猜对了,是电动马达。没有电?也意味着没有水。


It barely rains here but oh ho ho when it does, prepare to cancel all your plans for the next few days because a little rain is the perfect excuse for everyone to shut everything down.

这里几乎不会下雨,但是当下雨的时候,哦呵呵,准备取消你接下来几天的所有计划吧,因为一点小雨是每个人关闭一切的完美借口。
