A View of the Neighborhood!

Photography in Juba (and South Sudan) is not viewed the same as it is viewed in other parts of the world (especially along the National Mall in Washington, D.C.). While taking photos with permission is permissible, the government frowns upon taking pictures of government institutions but it is hard to determine government buildings from non-government buildings. So, in an effort not to have my camera taken from me, I have decided to only use my iPone to capture scenes of Juba and to also use it discretely. Here are a few snapshots from around town…

A slum-like village has sprung up in the cemetery leading into the Afex camp. We pass by this site everyday as we leave and return to the camp.

  1. Wow, these photos are awesome! Are those goats attached to those pegs in the ground?

  2. Incredible pics and the clouds in the sky are incredible as well. Hope you are settling in well. Lots of updates please!

  3. I can’t believe you LIVE there – it’s like you’re on vacation. So proud of you for making a jump in your life I’m not sure I’d ever have the guts to make.

  4. The iPhone pics are awesome! I know you love your camera, though… Hopefully after some time passes you’ll feel more comfortable using it in certain circumstances. Hope you are doing well!!! I’d love to see pictures of your living space!
