Mvolo is known for its honey. Every time we travel to Western Equatoria, people ask us to bring back honey (and mangoes if they’re in season).
So it shouldn’t really be a surprise that Mvolo, the “honey factory” of South Sudan, is also awash in bees.
Yet color me surprised to find our shower water to be buzzing with an entire swarm of bees. They flock to the top like a blanket of bee fur (do bees even have fur? I have no clue. All I know is they have delicious honey).
Apparently it’s worse now that we’re back into full-fledged dry season.
But other than that, Mvolo is lovely. Slightly cooler than Juba. By which I mean 38*C (100*F) instead of 42*C (106*F) Although I would have enjoyed the 6 hour drive slightly more if the a/c in the car had been working. I’m a little dusty now.
