10th September. Day off. I had been in Darfur for nearly two weeks. A sacrifice to pay for working in surroundings with a security problem was to give up freedom. I spent practically the whole day inside the compound. The sun was nice.
3rd September, my forth day in El Geneina, Darfur. In the afternoon, a rainstorm came. It lasted for at least half an hour. Some people sought shelter back in their rooms. I held fort on the veranda in the middle of the compound.
