Southern Sudan Plans for Animal Cities

August 30, 2010

The BBC ran this article a while back.  We thought you’d enjoy something a little different.
“The authorities in southern Sudan have unveiled a $10bn (£6.4bn) plan to rebuild the region’s cities in the shapes of animals and fruit.”

“In Juba, the office of the regional president is situated where the rhinoceros’s eye should be.  In Wau, the sewage treatment plant is appropriately placed under the giraffe’s tail.  There is talk that the town of Yambio will be shaped like a pineapple.”
