Beyond the Darfur Mountains
06:04 (Ugandan Time) - Friday 3rd April 2009
Still in the air, I am currently somewhere beyond the Darfur, above the River Nile by 35,000 feet. I'm taking a moment to write because, having been woken up by the cabin lights coming on, I looked out of the window...
To my amazement, a dawn was breaking not in the usual near-monochrome of summer in the UK, but rather with all of the colours one usually expects to see in a rainbow. It is, for the most part, indescribably beautiful - I wish for many more.
