Back from short vacations in Juba

Postby buffybot_in_beirut » Thu May 31, 2012 2:54 pm

Yes, really. Juba as in South Sudan. Yes, vacations. No joke. Trip report here:

Will try to answer any further questions if I can. Sorry did not research beer prices (likely high, like all other prices), availability of black-market AK-47s, or fashion preferences of militia members in the disputed regions along the Sudanese border. Did strictly standard tourist stuff.

...but that is tourist stuff to us.

Really quite interesting. Thank you for posting the link :-)

Did a Juba vacation back in 2006. It was pretty sweet. From what I hear it sounds a helluva lot more developed now with hotels and electricity. Have to go back and check it.
