Last year the generator stopped working, the rains came and I started feeling sick. It was enough for me to decide to take a 'Sudan Hiatus' to regain my sanity. I decided 6 months in the Middle East working with Iraqi refugees should just about do it and now I'm back! Now I know that for most people that sounds horribly difficult and not much of a break, but believe me living in a city with all the modern amenities you are used to really was the break that I needed. Hopefully this time back I'm coming in refreshed and ready for another Sudan experience. I'm based in Yei and will be traveling to new areas of Sudan including the transitional areas (which are not officially North or South Sudan yet). I'm hoping to stay through the census, the elections and will definitely be following the referendum closely in 2011. It really is a fascinating time in history to be working in a place like Sudan. Stay tuned...
