Other Information:
Another image of this man [1998.355.100] is labelled Gaajok man (Nasser) and confirms that he is standing on a narrow path next to the Sobat at Nasir. This image is taken shortly after [1998.355.100] and shows that E-P moved to his right onto the path and approached the man, who also seems to have moved off the path onto the grass to the right, taking another image as the man turns to go.
