My flight was another long one with not a lot to look at below me. The landscape did begin to develop sporadic patches of vegetation. I spotted a handful of small settlements too although I couldn’t tell you what they were called.
The clouds began to reappear after what feels like a long time without seeing any. I kept a level flight clipping the top of the clouds whenever they would stray in front of me.
Again I had a little fun by dropping altitude and speeding over the river. By now the river Nile was a ragged stretch of water broken up by many shards of land. More and more signs of life clung to its banks as I reached Malakal.
Malakal’s airport is at the north of the city and I didn’t have the enthusiasm to take any extra time flying over the city. I simply headed straight for the tarmac.
The Mud of Malakal.
