DJIBOUTI

Djibouti lies in northeast Africa on the Gulf of Aden at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. The country, the size of Massachusetts, is mainly a stony desert. Two-thirds of Djibouti’s inhabitants live in the capital city; the remainders are mostly nomadic herders. At first glance the poverty, filth, and stench are all encompassing; however, a closer look reveals that what is truly overwhelming is the splendor of the landscapes, and the life lived in Djibouti.
