It is almost impossible to visit the bigger cities in Sudan or Egypt without coming in contact with Nubians. The tall dark skinned people are ethnically distinct from the Arabs of the countries they are living in. although, their color and features vary enough to indicate that the contemporary Nubians are a mixture of many peoples. Intermarriages with Arabs, Turks, Hungarians and other peoples have taken place over the centuries. The Nubians are well known for their honesty, cleanliness, hospitality and faithful services.
