Day 11 – It’s a long way back from Tipperary… I mean Shuwak…

2016-10-26T00:02:54+00:00

I awoke at 7:00 this morning in dire need of coffee, the accommodation was more than adequate and definitely an improvement on the hotel we had been staying in. We each had a room, there were provisions for making tea and coffee (sachets Nescafe of 3 in 1 coffee). We had a few jobs to tidy up on the servers, have breakfast then head off

Day 10 – It’s a long way to Tipperary… Err I mean Shuwak.

2016-10-26T00:02:54+00:00

I agreed with Carlo last night that we should get an early start in the morning so we ca make an early start on the work before we set off. When we left last night we still hadn’t received our security clearance so we wouldn’t be leaving at the advertised time of 8:30 anyway. I woke at 6:00 still tired from the night before (working

Day 9 – So long farewell, auf weidersehen good-bye…

Just thought I would drop an entry in to say that I am heading to Shuwak tomorrow morning as prevously advertised. There won't be an internet connection available so I won't be able to give you some of my ramblings to read or update with new photo's.I'm a bit nervous about heading up there I have to say. The compound is in a remote location

Day 8 – I need Paper Clips, A Torch and Tan Shoe Polish…

2016-10-26T00:02:54+00:00

It was a fairly hectic day with the stats reports again so it was an early start and a late finish (still working, thought I would break to update the bloggerama).A few things of note happened today. We are travelling to Shuwak on Tuesday and needed to get papers from the government authorising our travel. We needed our passports and a passport picture. I’m not

Day 7 – Old Khartoum, Free Flies and A Museum…

2016-10-26T00:02:54+00:00

Not going through the breakfast thing again, you know I sleep, you know I eat and drink coffee in the morning, that is now a given. Ok, I’m going to take us back in time before I tell the next bit. The night I arrived in Khartoum, they were going to put me on the 1st floor with Rob, he said “cmon, give him a

Day 6 – Lunch in Downtown Khartoum

2016-10-26T00:02:54+00:00

I was able to have more sleep this morning, that was a real treat. I had been running on empty for the past few days and all the sugary supplements in the world couldn't bring my energy levels back up. I'm waking up in the morning with the feeling that I have a head cold, but I think it’s just a combination of the dust

Day 5 – Snakes, Scorpions and Big Black Beetles? What the…

2016-10-26T00:02:55+00:00

I’m soooooooo tired this morning, skipped breakfast and just headed downstairs, it was already 8:15am. Rob was sat in reception, I just nodded my hello (Rob isn’t much for talking in the mornings), was feeling half asleep, I knew that would be cured by a good dose of Turkish Coffee without a doubt. We headed of in a Taxi and I didn't even have the

Day 4 – Hey Paul, What are you doing tonight?

2016-10-26T00:02:55+00:00

Had a bit of a restless nights sleep last night, woke up about 3:30 in the morning, it was so hot, got up and turned the air conditioning on (the single prop airplane). Went back to sleep, woke up at 4:30 the noise was really annoying, turned off the single prop airplane. Woke up at 5:30, really hot, turned on the… you get the picture.

Day 3 – Ground Floor – Household Goods, Ladies Lingerie and Human Pinball…

2016-10-26T00:02:55+00:00

Woke up late this morning (Doh!), had a shower, had to skip breakfast blah, blah, blah… still haven’t got a razor and forgot to ask at reception if they could get me one. But I have decided that I am going to try shaving holding the blade in my finger tips, if I have any catastrophic slips of the hand I will send piccies for

Day 2 – Data Cleansing…

2016-10-26T00:02:55+00:00

Well, another day, not going to talk you through breakfast again, it was pretty much the same as the previous day, cleaned teeth, omelette, coffee (well there is the abridge version), but this morning I did realise I’d left my razor blade holder at home, I have the razor blades, but nothing to hold them with… Anyway, I’m starting to look a little beardy, so
