I have discovered these links for anybody who wants to know more about the situation in Darfur:
It is a joyous occasion when this Boeing 707 (Saartjie) lands at El Fashier once a month to deliver our parcels and other needed items. Unfortunately I had to fly with it to Khartoum so I did not get the opportunity to get my parcels. I will get them on my way back.

I took this last night. Beautiful or deadly? One thing about life I have learned is when you are down you are bound to go up and when you are up you will go down. Through it all you will follow your little road and hopefully end up with a satisfying journey.

When I was in El Fashier Johan and I went to get some take aways in town. This place is called "The Roast House" and the food is OK, but the selection is not big and there is no understandeable menu.

Last night the amount of flying insects at the spotlights around the base grew to a staggering amount. Unfortunately this photo cannot give you the correct idea of exactly how many there are now. I have never had so many mosquito bites, not even when I was in Burundi.
Last night Sherif and I discovered the South African police guys have a few shots at goal at the soccer field outside the base. Sherif is the goalkeeper. I would never use him for a goalkeeper in my team. He was terrible!
