An odds and ends kind of day

Sometimes you get the kind of day that is sort of disjointed... like a puzzle where the bits don't quite fit together. And since today have been such a day, it makes sense to have a post that is the same - it's perfectly logical if you don't think about it.

 Early morning in Yei, just a few minutes after sunrise.
Tearing down...
 ...and putting back up 10 meters away. There is quite a lot of new buildings being assembled in our Team Site, probably according to some plan or reason. On the other hand, you can never be sure about such things in the UN...
 Lunch! Sardines in spicy tomato sauce, bought on a whim a couple of weeks ago.
Tasty enough, but can't compare to the mackerel in tomato sauce* I can get for putting on my bread back home.

*) Commonly known as "air crash" among children and Air Force personnel, it's a very popular spread back home since it was introduced in the '50s. Since they have now introduced it in "tooth paste tubes", I might bring a supply back with me next time I'm on leave - it's good for me, after all!
