“First off, These are about the prettiest flowers in this country:
The only other flowers here are what we call the national flower of Djibouti, a plastic bag in a tree.
Here Are some of the animals around:
I don't know why this little goat had the can around his head, so don't ask...
Camels: Often overworked, undernourished and treated very bad by their owners. I think that they are very interesting animals and not near as dumb as they look. We have been treating a lot of them for simple injurys to more serious infections. You can see below where I found one camel in the northern mountains that had its front feet tied together to prevent it from leaving. We cut it loose and let it return to the high mountains after we gave him a few anibiotics and vitamins, He was actually a healthy guy compared to many that we treat here.
And the Real sh&t. I can't post many pictures like this but these are ok. I love riding around in these things. The best is when you stand at the .50 cal in the back. The veiw is outstanding.
And last but not least, a good picture of the "goat Lady" doing her thing. I didn't know I got the goats were gettin'-it-on in the background untill I was adjusting the picture on photoshop. Laughed my ass off.

““Git along, little nanny goat!!
That's funny as he!!.
Here it's a little different. The use that stick and beat a bush and yell, "GAT GAT GAT GAT GAT GAT GAT!" It is hillarious to wacth when you first get here. The goats will all run to the bush that they are beating on.
The old lady just beats goats, and I have no idea why....
