Exciting, chaotic, but it all works. Leaving is straightforward. They do check through your bags as they have no x-ray machine. You pay the departure tax...

  • THE BUS - IT IS CHEAP!

    The buses are the easiest and cheapest way to get around. You need to waive at them as they don’t stop for Tourists because they think a huge 4 x 4 vehicle from the UN or similar organisation is about to pick you up. The first 2 passed me right by!

  • Trucks

    The most ubiquitous form of transport for locals was the Toyota pickup truck. I've never seen anything like how many people that cram into the back. In one case, we saw more than 25 people in the bed of one of those smaller trucks. Amazing.

  • HMMWVs

    We did all of our travels in High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs), or the "Hummer," as it's called...It's a great vehicle, can go almost anywhere, and has a wide range of modifications. As the medics, we had both cargo versions (2 seaters), and ambulances.

  • I flew Air Somalia from Saudi...

    I flew Air Somalia from Saudi Arabia (that flight may no longer exist). Don't take any flights first stopping at Hargeisa in the north. Sometimes your seat onward to Mogadishu can't be reconfirmed beyond that point on your supposedly confirmed ticket.I used taxis. Nowadays, who knows?
