Farewell Djibouti

Before leaving Djibouti, Kristin, Malcolm and I had a chance to wander around the city center. The market was crowded, loud, and colorful.

This fruit seller runs one of hundreds of kiosks in the large market.

Djibouti has become infamous for the amount of khat, a hallucinogenic plant, the people there consume. We were in the market when the day's supply of khat was delivered. While some dealers were adamant that we not take photographs, we found person willing to let us get this shot.

Here is our field production team, Keith Porter, Kristin McHugh, and Malcolm Brown standing just inside the main entry to Camp Lemonier in Djibouti.
