Many have asked me if the place we're going to in Sudan is near where I was in 1987. The two places are only about 650 miles apart, but are in entirely different geographic regions with completely different cultures. In 1987, I travelled through Khartoum to a small, remote desert village in northern Sudan called Hamrat Al-Wuz. This year, we're travelling via Uganda (south of Sudan) to Juba, the capital of Southern Sudan, in order to catch a flight to the town of Aweil. It is rainy season, and I'm told it is very green there at this time of year.
