Getting to Djibouti by road was no mean feat, I wanted to give up many times but I am glad I persevered

I bring you greetings from the country of Djibouti. Bordering Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia, Djibouti occupies a small land area and has a population of about 850,000 citizens. A former French colony, Djibouti is hot, humid, and dry. Lake Assal, the world’s largest salt reserve is found here.

Just a few days ago, a port dedicated only to salt export was opened in Tadjourah, a town in Djibouti.

Getting to Djibouti by road was no mean feat, I wanted to give up many times but I am glad I persevered. At the borders and checkpoints, once I presented my passport, the immigration officer would call his colleagues showing my passport to them. Their fascination was obvious. They possibly had never seen a Ghanaian passport at their border/check point. Here are some pictures and videos of my exploits.
