Where did you run from?

Renk, Upper Nile State, South Sudan.

Where do you plan to go?

I do not consider returning to the South since being in Khartoum is more convenient for me.

What do you wish you could have taken with you? And why do you still dream of it?

A mosquito net and a blanket. The road was tough. I would have used them for protection against the cold and the mosquitoes, especially on the way here.

What is your favourite item now? And what makes this item very precious?

Nothing.
