red tape cutting
Southern Sudan isn't exactly a country yet, so getting there can be kind of tricky. We spent almost all of today in and out of the Southern Sudanese consulate in Nairobi, trying to get travel permits. We finally succeeded, but weren't able to get flights to Juba until tomorrow.
Now for the good news: with all of our extra time we were able to go to a nature reserve and see baby elephants and rhinos. They have been orphaned for various reasons (poaching, natural disaster, etc), rescued, and raised on the reserve to be released to the wild when they are ready.
