    I have had no fallout whatsoever as a result of the Canadian Medecins sans frontières staff abducted then released. Darfur is very far from here. Read my March 25 post for other ways that Southern Sudan may be affected by the NGO/humanitarian situation in Darfur. I do find myself practicing self-censorship but I think that is somehow unavoidable in many situations. The present government in Sudan has little tolerance of journalists and even less of criticism.

    The people I’ve met in Southern Sudan have all been kind and welcoming. Sometimes ambivalent but rarely so. I don’t think I’ve shaken so many friendly hands in one month in all my life! Great people.

    Great pix, Widge. Especially that last shot of the men — bitchin’!

    Hi David:

    Your blog is fascinating. I’m curious about whether you’ve had any fallout as a result of the recent abduction and subsequent release of a Canadian nurse in Sudan. Are you having to be careful about what questions you ask, how you blog, where you go, who you ask? Are you greeted with ambivalence or friendliness?
