To be continued...

I was sick, burnt out, becoming cynical, and feeling like I was working on a project that wasn't doing good anymore (more on that later)- so last month I decided that it was time to leave Sudan. It was a sad day, I never wanted to leave the country that I learned to love but knew that the longer I stayed there the harder it would be to leave and come back to a 'normal' life. There are a million things that I will miss, but for now I am just trying to catch up on sleep, readjust to waking up in my own bed, have running water, good food all the time and my family close to me. I have thousands of photos and stories floating around in my head which I will continue to post. And as soon as I am recovered fully I will start the job search again with the hope of continuing to work towards peace in Sudan in some way or another.

Hi! I found your blog really interesting, and hope you are enjoying life since you have left Sudan. I am moving to Juba with NGO in 2 weeks.. and I am wondering if you have an essential packing list.. or any advice for young european female. I will be based in Juba, but with alot of field travel in the south and north... lived in Nairobi for a year.. so I ma no stranger to Africa.. but would love some Sudan advice! Thanks!
