Three old Beja websites + Bonus!

Here are three sites that deal with items of interest for the Beja people, but they have not been updated for a long time, though they are still online today. If you're interested in the recent history or the poetry of the Beja people, check these sites out.

Mohamed O Ibrahim lives in Canberra, Australia, and posted from 2006 until November 2011 at http://www.dabaiwa.com. He covered news stories and politics in east Sudan. A few stories are in English.

The East Sudan development site offers some documentation of government activities in Arabic. There's a series of 20 photos of a new building on one page... Looks like the site is being hosted on a free hosting service, and was last active in 2010.... 

http://habyaat.blogspot.ca/ is an Arabic language blog based in Canada with entries posted in November 2011. Adroob Huaan posted only eight entries only, covering poetry, stories and proverbs in To Bedawie with translations into Arabic. Includes a few pictures.

BONUS!!!!!    Update, May 2012.
Large forum of specifically BEJA material. Dates 2009, 2010, and 2011. Worth a look.
For Arabic only, or get English language content when you click through below.
