Finally in Sudan!
Online from Sudan.......
We boarded our flight for Sudan at 6:30 this morning. After a three hours flight and a ½ hours refueling in a small village, the UN Security plane landed in Bahr El Ghasal. It's good to be in Sudan.... finally! We unloaded the plane and went to our friends.
We are in a war zone and we must carry the "run-away" bag in case of a quick evacuation. Yesterday there was an attack in a village just 50 km from our location. Not far at all!!! Our camels have arrived and the two coming days will be used for preparations such as, packing, getting to know the camels and discussing the route.
We plan on starting our walk on Saturday the 20th of January.
