A lot has been said about Somalia and the civil war that has seen the nation implode in the last two decades. Recently, the Australian High Commission together with the Goethe Institut launched a book titled; Peace and Milk (Nabad iyo Caano) that contained scenes from the northern Somalia dubbed the 'Unseen Somalia.' The event was held at the Goethe Institut offices in Nairobi's Maendeleo House.
The book written by internationally acclaimed environmentalist Fatima Jibrell and retired Australian diplomat James Lindsay, gives an analogy of the beauty and the variety of Somali landscapes with the camel as its common mode of transport.
The event had Australian high commissioner Geoff Tooth as the chief guest. " It's my desire that the scenes of 'Unseen Somalia' will inspire all of us to put our foot forward and help rebuild the Somalia Republic that has a rich history of culture with its capital city Mogadishu known as the most cosmopolitan cities in Africa," said the envoy.
