4. About Djibouti

Scene from Dhalinyaro
  1. Djibouti is majority Somali, with about 60 percent of the population being Somali, and Afar (which I had never heard of) being the second-largest majority at 35 percent.
  2. Somali women and girls use a face mask made from turmeric, which you can bet I’m going to try since I’ve never met a Somali sister with bad skin. (Sorry if you’re the ONE, don’t @ me.)

5. Woodland Style Art
