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.
