Home sweet hut in South Sudan

This is my tukul for the next six weeks – barring any trips to villages outside of Doro. Isn’t it cute?

Some key aspects of tukul fundamentals and etiquette:

1. Plastic-lined ceiling: Helps insulate against rain and debris coming through – and, in theory, repels some of the creepy crawlies that get in the thatched roof.

2. Mosquito net, tucked in at all times: Aforementioned creepy crawlies like comfy beds too. Too bad I’m not in the mood to share.

3. Hang clothes up: Helps air them out, especially in rainy season – and, say it with me now: keeps the creepy crawlies to a minimum. Just be sure to shake them out before you put them on. You never know what might have climbed into a crease.

4. Don’t reach into dark places without shining some light on the situation: Why? You guessed it. Creepy crawlies.
