I’ve been in sunny, dusty, goat-filled Hargeisa – capital city of Somaliland – for a week now and it’s been a good experience so far :) For those who need a quick history lesson, since 1991 Somaliland has been a self-declared independent state which is bordered by Puntland (a semi-autonomous region of Somalia – more on that one later!), Ethiopia and Dijbouti, however it is not recognised as such by any countries or international institutions, which means that unlike the rest of Somalia it does not receive any international funding.  974 more words
