Looking back on their earlier experiences with resettlement, all but one of the first generation respondents in Habbob’s survey stated that the first years of resettlement were the worst. The one exception was a university-educated engineer. Of the eight who gave more specific answers, six emphasized the first 10 years and two the first 15 as the most difficult. Difficulties listed included leaving Old Nubia, confusion concerning the future, and, most frequently mentioned, difficulties adjusting to a new area and new neighbors.

In the boats Nubians sat in deep silence staring at the disappearing village which they had left forever (Fahim 1968: 70). Following arrival, “A feeling of insecurity and mistrust prevailed … doors were closed and people approached the strange neighbors cautiously … Many Nubians lived in great fear of the non-Nubian groups living near their new villages. They were also suspicious of the Nubians next to them” (Fahim 1968: 78). “So fearful were Nubians of others that youth patrols were mounted during the first few months to keep outsiders away from Nubian communities” (Fahim no date: 112).

In planning the layout of villages, the government tried to follow Nubian desires that villages be aligned to each other as they had been in Old Nubia. The main exception was where three small villages were aggregated within others. The final 37 villages (nahia) retained their names, with Adindan, for example, becoming New Adindan. In most villages, a mosque and a guesthouse were provided. Also provided were 19 elementary schools, one boarding secondary school, three technical boarding schools, and a vocational training school for teachers.
