Today two of my team left us for their scheduled end of mission, one Beninese and one Russian. Both good guys, and both just recently transfered to us from Abyei. As I told them during yesterdays little going-away-dinner; they came to Yei too late and left too early.
For the rest of us there is still no news - persistent rumours says we may expect something towards the end of the week. Once we know who will stay and who will go they will probably open up for leaves again... probably. If it don't happen within the next couple of weeks I'll barely have time to go on leave before my time here in South Sudan runs out; we're not allowed to go on leave the last 21 days before our end of mission, and my mission officially ends on the 18th of September.
