Hello from Australia, Werner :) I found your blog when searching for quotation sites, and though I never in a million years expected to ever say hello to a South African soldier working in Darfur: hello! (The wonders of the internet. It really is amazing.)

Thanks for publishing your photos. They're interesting, but more than that, they're like windows into a part of the world that most of us will never see or understand.

Best wishes and thanks.

Hi, Deirdre. Thanks for making my day. Take care and come back again.

Will do, and thanks again for the opportunity. I'm guessing it can't be easy for you, posting to a blog from a tent. But you manage it, and in style too. Well done :)

Please take care yourself, and all the best to you and the people of Darfur. Peace be with you, ASAP.
