UN military escort

To reach Tongo we are required by UN security to take a UN military escort. We were escorted by two jeeps and a truck from the Madras Regiment, Indian Army. The journey that should take thirty minutes took an hour and a half because of the pace of the military. Twice we passed cars of international NGOs speeding along without escort. Arriving in a village surrounded by men with guns is an uncomfortable feeling.
