Switching off after 3 months South Sudan
Oh to escape after 3 months trying to get stuff going, it was a pleasure to get on the plane out of Juba on the morning of 14th November and make it to Nairobi. Picked up from the airport by a good friend and driven to a lovely house in Karen, to eat good cheese and sit in civility surrounded by a green garden with flowers and trees full of birds, so very different from my tent in a dusty yard in Juba.
I had one night in Nairobi before going back to the airport in the morning to meet my dive buddy who was flying in from the UK, before boarding a Precision Air flight for Zanzibar and then after a few hours wait another flight to paradise on Pemba.
A hour and a half with "Fast Eddie" the colourful character of the best taxi driver on Pemba up the island through the Ngezi forest to Kervan Saray.
It has been so long since I have managed to post I will let the photos do the talking, save to say we had 3 days fantastic diving before my brother arrived for his first
trip to Africa and his first diving experience, we then had some more excellent diving, not so deep, but still amazing and staying in the fantastic surroundings of the wonderful lodge and its setting in the north of Pemba.
Enjoy the pics....
