The Inaugural Post (from East London)

This blog aims to provide stories, photos, and anecdotes from the upcoming year I’ll spend in Somaliland. I’m writing this first post from my brother’s flat in Hackney and my departure to Africa is still three weeks away, but I just want to make sure that I figure out the ins-&-outs of blogging now. Transitioning to a new lifestyle on a new continent will be hectic enough, so hopefully I will be able to simply sit down and type once I’m there and not have to worry about formatting and layout.

Before I arrive in Hargeisa, the capital city of Somaliland, I’ll be spending some time in Istanbul, Dubai, and a brief two hours in Djibouti. Perhaps I’ll write something about my experiences there.
