I haven't been to Somalia since 1996 but i can tell you it once was a very beautiful country but as you probably know it is very messed up now because every1 wants to be in control. Anyways I will try to get some pictures for u of how Somalia looked in the past inshallah.

SOMALIA

June 05, 2006

This Travel Warning is being issued to remind Americans of continued concerns about the security situation in Somalia. This supersedes the Travel Warning of July 21, 2005.

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all travel to Somalia, including the self-proclaimed “independent Republic of Somaliland.” Inter-clan and inter-factional fighting can flare up with little warning, and kidnapping, murder, and other threats to U.S. citizens and other foreigners can occur unpredictably in many regions. Armed conflict among rival militias has occurred in Southern Somalia, particularly in and around Mogadishu, which has resulted in the deaths of dozens of Somali nationals. There is no U.S. Embassy or other U.S. diplomatic presence in Somalia.

In late 2003 and early 2004 there were attacks against foreigners in the self-declared "Republic of Somaliland" in northern Somalia. The Sanaag and Sool Regions in eastern Somaliland, bordering on Puntland (northeastern Somalia), are subject to insecurity due to potential inter-clan fighting. In past years, there also have been several fatal attacks against international relief workers, including Westerners, throughout Somalia and Somaliland. In addition, serious fighting has occurred in the Mogadishu area and the districts of Gedo and Bay (especially the vicinity of Baidoa) in the south.

Territorial control in the Mogadishu area is divided among numerous groups; lines of control are unclear and frequently shift, making movement within this area extremely hazardous.

U.S. citizens are urged to use extreme caution when sailing near the coast of Somalia. Merchant vessels, fishing boats and recreational craft all risk seizure by pirates and having their crews held for ransom, especially in the waters off the Horn of Africa. There have been numerous such incidents, highlighting the continuing danger of maritime travel near the Horn of Africa. The international waters near Somalia have become the preferred venue for these pirate attacks. If transit around the Horn of Africa is necessary, it is strongly recommended that vessels travel in convoys, and maintain good communications contact at all times.

The U.S. government cannot provide services to U.S. citizens in Somalia. U.S. citizens who plan to travel to Somalia despite this Travel Warning are urged to register through the State Department's travel registration website, https://travelregistration.state.gov and obtain updated information on travel and security from the U.S. Embassies in neighboring countries. Travelers to the self-declared “Republic of Somaliland” should register with the U.S. Embassy in Djibouti, and travelers to Puntland or southern Somalia should register with the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi.

Although that is an ole warning, it is updated and considered current for today.

Can we say, trip down on memory lane! Maan-soor Hotel was my hang out place in the summer...man I miss their fish and chips! Don't forget the shignii.<however you spell it. I wonder if you have a better pic of Ambassador Hotel.

In the third picture of the S-land ones, is that the road to the airport?

In the last picture of the S-land ones, is that taken inside the Idaacada (radio station)?

Also, where is this beautiful city Marka located in Somalia?

Oh and let me add, May Allah protect the people of Somalia and may it become safe for us to live in. Ameen.

MashaAllah, I never knew I was gonna feel like this now but I can't wait to go back.

JazakAllah for the pics. Representing Somalia well.

Somalia continues to have one of the highest child mortality rates in the world, with 10% of children dying at birth and 25% of those surviving birth dying before age five. On the other hand, Somalia also has one of the lowest HIV infection rates in Africa. -from wikipedia

:statisfie :statisfie


compared to Malaysia :exhausted (erm...maybe because of the population :-[ )

Syilla the sad child morality rates is due to the ''instability'' another example Afghanistan but both Afghanistan and Somalia have a very high birth rate

Hiv/aids rate in Somalia masha-allah is very low, Malaysia has the same rate of 0.5/1 % and it's effect is probably insignificant since it has a larger population:)
