Prepare for Radio Silence.
We have now been in South Sudan for six months. Most agencies, including organisations like OXFAM and Save the Children, who are well known for spending their money carefully, send their staff on ‘R&R’ every eight weeks or so, but VSO volunteers are reckoned to be made of sterner stuff.
Not us. We are taking some leave starting at the end of this week. Our daughter, Kate, has just arrived in Rumbek to check whether what we have been telling her for the past six months is, in fact, true , and then on Friday we’ll be off to Kenya and Tanzania for a safari holiday in a big truck. Can’t wait.
So, for those regular and faithful readers who follow the blog every week, there is likely to be a bit of a hiatus. I will try to post something if we come across an internet café somewhere, but photos will have to wait until we get back at the beginning of next month.
It’ll be tough, but you’ll get through it!
