Al-Fashir, Sudan

Dorothy Duckinsie, Invention / Things Historian

Earhart’s next stop was Al-Fashir in Sudan.  You might be thinking, “Why does she have to stop so many times?” Remember that Earhart was flying in a small plane.  Air travel has changed tremendously since Earhart made her trip.  Follow this link to a hand drawn map to a house in Al-Fashir.

Al-Fashir is the capital city in North Darfur.  It is a big agricultural marketplace for cereals and fruit.  The town grew around the palace of the sultan.  The palace of the sultan is still in Al-Fashir, but is now a museum.
