We’re back in Blacktown, parking at the same location as in October last year and still hoping to meet up with our Sudanese friend Deng.

Parking at Blacktown, January 2012
Our parking spot on a vacant block of land is so peaceful that David and I can sleep outside on a blanket.

Upon approaching some Dinka men on the main street, we soon learned that Deng is now back from Sudan and we received his phone number. It was wonderful to talk to him on the phone, and we’ll be able to catch up with him on the weekend when he’s off work. Until then, we’ll be playing in Blacktown — visiting the shops, riding the escalators, reading at the library and perhaps sleeping under the stars again!
