|How to wait for your plane in style|
Next, as got seated on the plane, Taeler discovered that her seatmate was none other than John's colleague Francois! So we got to meet him too.
|Where did ALL that luggage come from?|
|Mawiir and his brother Garang|
Today we had a short but thrilling roller coaster of a plane ride to Juba--it is rainy season here, and that means lots of thunderstorms and other weather excitements. But despite that, Pastor Taeler didn't die, the plane landed wheel-side down--just like it's supposed to-- and delivered us to the sweltering immigration and customs office at Juba Airport. After a dinner with some of Mawiir's family members who live in Juba, we're off to do the good kind of crashing in preparation for tomorrow's final leg of the journey--flying to Aweil and then driving out to the Marial Bai area.
Because it's rainy season and roads are becoming more impassible by the day, we are now planning to stay right in Marial Bai instead of staying near Aweil and driving out each day. But that means we don't know what kind of internet access we will have, if any. Stay tuned--we'll be talking plenty of pictures and videos, but you might not be able to see them until next week...
