Living in Somalia
Somalia is an East African nation located on the ‘Horn of Africa’ with a long coastline adjacent to the Indian Ocean. It lies next to three countries; Djibouti to the north-west, Ethiopia to the west, and Kenya to the south-west. It has a population of 14.3 million, and about 20% of these inhabitants reside in the capital city of Mogadishu, located towards the south of Somalia’s coastline. For the majority of the 1990s, Somalia was a lawless state, being in the middle of a large civil war. The 200s saw the beginnings of some form of order, and in 2012 a new government was finally formed, though many severe problems still remain, and Somalia overall is rather fragile. In particularly, the seas off the coast of Somalia are notorious for piracy, and this has manifested in various high-profile cases, usually when Western civilians were held hostage in an attempt to acquire vast sums of ransom money. Generally. Somalia’s climate is that of a desert, due to the nation being very close to the Equator; less than 2% of Somalia’s land is arable. Agriculture remains the principal industry for the country however, despite the challenge conditions, and this focuses mainly on livestock. Islam is basically on the only religion practiced in Somalia, and the country’s culture is reflective of this.
