I was in Sudan Feb/Mar 05 with UN New York and they need a lot of expertise – there is one place I know of in this country that manufacturers that expertise and that’s why I sent it to you Bill – I have no idea if the RMC Club disseminates this type of information but they need 500 people in Logistics/Admin/Contracts in Sudan. I don’t know if this is for USAID or PAE or ????

For my class – if you have a friend (or foe) looking for adventure – Sudan is the destination of choice (and heat) Good Luck – Chimo

PS. I am staying close to home and repairing and building things at the nice College that hired me – Sudan is not in my immediate future at this point.
