Djibouti has the modern colonial syndrome. The French rulers departed thirty-four years ago, but here, like other places in the world, even after a generation or two, people are still pissed off. Unlike Ethiopia, sometimes invaded, but never colonized, where everyone smiles a sparkling smile, folks in Djibouti City sneer, more or less, with a rotted out set of khat -gnawed teeth. So what in heaven’s name am I doing here?
I am here for the lakes.
Ah, what lakes!
