And now, a word from our sponsor…

Undecided where to go on vacation? Here are some suggestions from Abdi Jimale Osman, Somalia’s minister of tourism:

“Tourists can still go and see the former beautiful sights. The only problem is they’re all totally destroyed. Most of the animals have disappeared too, because we have eaten them. I’m sure tourists would leave Somalia alive and I’m hopeful they wouldn’t be kidnapped. At least, we would try to make sure they were not kidnapped, although it can happen.”
