Juba South Sudan

Africa-South Sudan-Juba  I had spend some time organising my visa for South Sudan. I ended up getting it in Nairobi. Organising anything in Juba took ages. With flights changing and being cancelled. In the end it was fine. Some roads were good, others non existent . It is also quite expensive to visit hotel and food wise. 

I had purchased the postcards in advance as there were no Postcards for sale in Juba. I did try for my own information. Also the Post office is not known. The hotel told me there was no Post office and that everyone uses DHL. The Post office was friendly and they had to find the key to get the stamps. I only got this card last week. So that is over 5 months. I did send two batches  as all the mail goes over via Khartoum in Sudan.

  1. Congrats on the South Sudan card's arrival. Good things come to those who wait.
    Now that it arrived , 5 months doesn't seem so bad.
    Take care.

  3. Very cool. I was in contact with someone in South Sudan. They said the post office closed over night, and they wouldn't send or sell him any stamps. So, very nice to get a postcard from there - well done :)
