May 24th 2010 8:25AM So sorry to hear that.
Am sorry about the bad experience for your trip to Berbera, any thing you abuse will make you loose control, not only Khat, but, for the driver i should say that he should have not been drinking and and driven, that's what he did, when you guys reach Berbera as you mentioned the guy never ate anything at all, he was keep chewing, not to mention that he was greedy and selfish.
I my self had some problems with such drivers while i was there, but i immediately set them free and got others that were not chewing, again am sorry that you did went through what some of us have experienced, i hope that you will enjoy the rest of your trip there. I agree with you that Somaliland tourism department is weak, but it will never remain like that. Unlike Warabe i wont say they are all stoned people, but of course just like any where in the west there are drunk drivers or people under the influence out there working constructions or oil fields and so on.
Enjoy it Sean, and have a bundle of Khat on my tap body lol.
Take care and have fun body.
May 19th 2010 8:09AM Well done Sean, am glad you made it to Lasgeel, i was there in early 2007 i spent quite a good time there and i really love it, though i couldn't make it last year while i was In Somaliland.
Lasgeel is part of the heritage of Somaliland, yet there is more to discover, hopefully some time soon in the future.
Thanks again and will keep following your next report.

That's right, not only in Somaliland but a heavy number of the diaspora people including me are ready to be there in June, i live in Canada and just got back from Somaliland Feb-12 this year and again we are proud going there and participating.
May 14th 2010 7:44AM Excellent Report Sean.
Thanks for the well asserted report about Somaliland and your trip there, i visit Somaliland every year, it's true as you witnessed that Somalilanders are so eager to move forward and let the past take it's peace.
Nothing comes in one day, Somalilanders are doing there best to rebuild there country, creating jobs, challenging the rest of the world to regain the recognition we once had and gave away as present in 1960, Somaliland paid and still willing to pay the remains of the price of the freedom and the existence of the Somaliland we once had in 1960.
Gone are the days of what once use to be Somalia which Somaliland created mistakingly, we wish Somalia the best and hopefully one day things will get normal, for Somaliland the recognition is in our hands, yesterday May 13 Somaliland Election Commission started giving the voter's there registration cards for the Somaliland presidential election's and as always every thing went peacefully thanks to Somaliland and Somalilanders. June 26 2010 is the official day which every Somalilander will hit the line up of the polling stations to elect there own and desired presedint and it's aviliating party. of part and president for the coming five years.
