juba…

Its hot. forgot how boiling this country can get in February.

I came to Juba a week ago.  Was thinking would only be here for about four days, but the days have stretched into a few more than that.  If things went well for my wife today, then we can actually look at leaving tomorrow. If they didn’t we may be stuck here until Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

Not only is it hot, it is also extremely dusty. Am glad there is a shower in my room to wash myself off with at night.  I feel a little guilty at having this privilege but havn’t lost any sleep because of it.

Other than the heat and dust, it has been nice to be here.  Each time I come I realize I would like to stay longer.  Its just that without a job, house or vehicle life in this place can be very difficult and slightly frustrating.  If we had at least one of the three, then maybe we could begin from there, but at the moment we don’t have any in this place.

Kenya is still having a few problems.  The leaders are still negotiating, but it doesn’t seem like they are getting very far.  There are lots of rumors running around about what might happen if the negotiations fall apart, and none of them are very nice.  The good thing about rumors is that they are mostly talk and hopefully very little substance.  All we can do is wait and see.
