Food for thought

Found a disconcerting report on BBC News about the situation in the Somali capital Mogadishu, which is to a large extent destroyed and deserted. The message at the end is stark. If the world continues to turn its back on trouble spots, they usually come round and hit it squarely in the face. Whether it be Somalia, Zimbabwe or the Middle East.

Eerie silence in empty Mogadishu.


  1. Very interesting read, hard to imagine life like that.  I was struck by the photo of the man & his little donkey with the caption "life is hard"...I believe that is a gross understatement.  How sad.

    I think I can't face reading that whole article right now.

    This is a downright shame to say the least.

  4. You are correct, Guido. You should be a politician. Wait, i think you are too honest.
