Nice pics, but do you think it actually has a half million people? I don't know if I can buy that.

Wonder where the division between the city is and how they demarcate it.

This is why Somalis need a electrical regulatory agency. The power lines are visual pollution.

lol yeah.. but those pictures were taken from a roof somewhere which makes it more apparent. If you are on the ground you barely notice it, which is maybe why they are so lax about it.
