Some things haven't changed, like getting haircuts by the canal or khat stands throughout the city and in every village in the countryside.
I spent some time visiting projects in the hills outside Djibouti where huge hills and ravines were covered with black volcanic rocks the size of bowling balls.
I was glad I had an interpreter with me for this trip as very few of the Djiboutians that I met with spoke in pure French. Most spoke in Somali or in a Somali-French hybrid. However, the people that spoke English only wanted to practice their English.
