Many of our friends have expressed some qualms about us crossing into Sudan again, following the ICC ruling against President Bashir last week. We are confident that we won't have a problem, and our Sudanese friends assure us that there is nothing to worry about. We will travel fairly quickly to Khartoum - probably only taking a couple of days to cross the north of the country this time - then another day or two out to Ethiopia. So our exposure to the country on this part of the journey will be very limited. We'll post an update once we get to Khartoum, and again once we are in Ethiopia next weekend.
