Exotic Land

Hello,
I went to Northern Somalia(Somaliland/Puntland) in Summer 2000. Travelled by plane from New York to Addis Ababa on Ethiopian Airlines, then took a flight from Addis Ababa to Hargeisa. Daallo Airlines now has flights from Amsterdam/Paris/London to the Horn of Africa. After arriving to my arrival I stayed at Local Hotels in Hargeisa. I also travelled by Rental Car to The cities of Berbera(nice beaches), Borama, and Burao which were all very beautiful cities. I also took a flight to Calmadow in Sanaag Region, Which is known for its beautiful green mountains and beautiful scenery. I also travelled to the port city of Bosaso in the North East, which was a bustling commercial city , Galkaio, and Lasanod. All and all a very incredible trip. I expect to be returning in 2003 for a longer stay. I would suggest against going to Southern Somalia because it is still too dangerous for tourists. But I would recommend going to Northern Somalia for an adventurous venture. Good Luck to All!
Included is a picture of Calmadow Region.
