What is the What

I met Valentino Achak Deng yesterday. Southern Sudan is a very small place. I was walking out of the Ministry of Education with Abraham our new Sudanese intern from the States (who knows everybody) and Abraham stops these 2 guys and throws out his arms, he hasn't seen these guys since Kakuma 10 years ago and its a huge emotional reunion. This happens about every 5 mins with Abraham. But one of the guys is Valentino, presumably on his way to talk to someone in Education about the school he's building in Marial Bai. Read the book, its awesome.
