…When Matt in Juba has written one for me?
The latest Stuff Expat Aid Workers Like is up, and it’s appropriately titled “Pool Day Sundays.”
It couldn’t be more dead on if it tried.
My first foray into weekend pool days in Juba consisted of chilling at a (then) brand new pool a bit out of town (next to the one where the Russians go and drink disturbingly unhealthy amounts of vodka). Apparently my friends had (thankfully) convinced the owner that they should not use the slushy machine to make wine slushies, and so we spent the day being handed round after round of complimentary (as they were still ‘testing things out’) mango tequila slushies.
If you think that sounds, uh, drinkable, let me just spoil that illusion for you and go ahead to say: No.
