  1. You’re crazy, man! Somalia? Are you trying to make the 6 o’clock news or what?



  2. The de facto independent state of Somaliland is actually stable and peaceful (by African standards, anyway). It used to be “British Somaliland,” and it merged with “Italian Somaliland” when those places gained independence in 1960, to form what is now the failed state of Somalia.

    Somaliland is not formally recognized as an independent nation: other African countries don’t want to recognize it, because they’re afraid that would encourage their own separatist groups to declare themselves independent; and Western nations won’t recognize it, because to do so would be seen as interfering too much in the politics of the Horn of Africa, and it could have negative destabilizing effects.

    But Somaliland issues its own passports, has its own currency, etc. You can get a Somaliland visa in Addis Ababa. I kind of wish I’d gone when I had the chance two years ago, but I didn’t want to go by myself.

    There’s even a Bradt travel guidebook for Somaliland. People go there.

    I think some crazy European dude did try to go to Somalia as a tourist a couple years ago: he somehow managed to get on an airplane to Mogadishu and just showed up at the airport there without a visa or anything. Everybody thought he was crazy (because he was). I think they just put him on the next flight back to Europe.



  3. I know if I ever need information on the country of Africa (Bush/Palin joke) I can get it here.

    Enjoy your weekend, brother.
