How do you get from Mapuordit to Atiaba ???

How do you get from one place to another in South Sudan? Carefully. Very carefully!  Don't even think of trying it during the rainy months; but even when the heavy rains have subsided, those innocent, shallow-looking streams will swamp a Land Cruiser faster than you can say, "Get me out of here!"

Here the vehicle founders and sinks as water swirls around it, nearly up to the driver's window. Amazingly, the engine did not roll over and die. Once the car was winched onto drier land (after several hours of mulling over the situation in the heat of the day), MBB staff were able to proceed to their destination.  Such are the joys of traveling in rural S.Sudan!
