Last day in Khartoum - again

And I'm not sad to leave. True enough, the Brrrsta Caramellos are good; but Khartoum compared to Yei is dusty, crowded, hot and expensive.

The training class covered - in theory - most needed subjects. However, the class suffered from the same faults as induction training: lack of facilities (25 students in a room 5m square, one barely working A/C), lack of instructor training for the instructors (the guys doing a particular job isn't always the best guy to teach a class in the subject) and lack of English skills (for both instructors and students). Still, I got my diploma and a few days in Khartoum - I'm not complaining too much.
