He is original from Ogaden region in Ethiopia, but he grew up in Belet weyne.

I was born there, but we moved to Hudur town, Bakool region when I was young.

Really very surprising!!

Here in Holland Somalia is mainly in the news in relation with war, famine and terrorism but this looks like a peaceful and reasonably prosperous place, they have cars, electricity and even a university!!!
What is true about all those stories about war and hunger?

Most regions in Somalia from the north to south enjoy a fair degree of stability and are showing quite impressive economic growth despite 20+ years of no government. There is some truth to what you see in the news but most of it is exaggerated.

Wacht maar tot dat je foto's van andere gebieden in Somalie ziet. Je zal echt verrast zijn. Heb je de "country gallery" bekeken ? zou je moeten doen

Ik denk niet dat dat de media een eerlijke en evenwichtige afspiegeling geeft van de situatie in de verschillende regio's van het land. Ze kiezen om zich te concentreren op de negatieve aspecten en de eventuele positieve ontwikkelingen te negeren. Helaas geldt het omgekeerde van de ouderdom gezegde "geen nieuws is goede nieuws" ... goede nieuws is geen nieuws.

For some reason, I thought Beledweyne was a more green area.

I know it has the Shebelle going through it but I didn't know it was surrounded by this kind of environment.

^ Xuseen, Traditionally it is very green but bear in mind there has been a severe drought over the past few months.
