The World's Newest Capital City

If Southern Sudan votes to cut off ties with the North, Juba will become the world's newest capital.  The good folks at Foreign Policy have posted some photos of this city of 250,000.  

Giving this a property angle, The New York Times makes the point that this could be the first step in an attempt to redraw colonial borders to better reflect cultural and linguistic ties.  (For map of linguistic ties, see here)
