It is hot here!



An early start from Nairobi this morning, to get a flight on a DC3 from Wilson Airport to Yei, in Southern Sudan. Yei is just below Aweil on the map shown above. We will try to head to Aweil at the weekend, but currently the roads are washed out with the flooding affecting this region. We had a couple of stops on the way, so the flight was almost four hours of great fun for me - I just love old aeroplanes! We are in the middle of nowhere it seems - very hot and humid. Enjoyed flying over the Nile en route, and I was amazed to find the Cush Consultation we are attending has arranged satellite-based broadband, wifi, the whole deal. But only at certain times. Pity there is not much electricty around the Teacher Training College, so charging up the laptop will be a test.

Yo MDT - as I mentioned in today's posting (on that which we discussed last night), it's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it! You are perhaps a little bit further North than my old stomping grounds - and I am green with envy.

It's good - as usual - to see you drop in for a quick e-chat before flying off to new horizons.

Just take care.

So when are you going to get yourself that second battery for the notebook?
