Sudan

Well, I have very nearly caught up with myself after my 17-day trip which included five countries, five hotels and three overnight flights. I can't write much here about the actual trip to Juba, but I can share with you some of the photographs I took (below the cut):


This is me in front of the Nile, looking toward the Juba Bridge, taken at Da Vinci's restaurant


These are my colleagues G and S, old Africa hands both, at our (second) hotel; it was my first trip to the continent, but both of them have been living and working in Africa for over thirty years


We paid our respects at the tomb of the leader of the Sudan People's Liberation Army, Dr John Garang, killed in a helicopter crash four years ago shortly after he had signed the treaty that ended the long-running war


Dr John Garang's principles live on


Robert, our (Kenyan) taxi driver - call him on +249 955 037 341


The White Nile (properly the Bahr al Jabal) and Juba, from the air


Village seen from the air


The Ethiopian restaurant where I had my first injera and wot


The mango tree I blogged about


Lizard seen in the forecourt of the hotel


Another lizard - different species?

Hope I go back some day.
