To the Nostalgic nomads...

Continuing on from the Aqal in my previous post, I shall be posting here some photographs of the Nomadic life in Somalia. I shall also be posting a few other miscelleneous pictures, but lets start with the reer-guraaga! All the pictures below are taken in Hawd by a friend of mine, hamze, who visited there a few months ago.

A return from Dhaan. This is where the herd is taken to the nearest water place - in most cases this would be the nesrest tuulo. The camel is loaded with water too for general usage. A dhaan expedition is usually undertaken by a Male - females generally are responsible for the the goats and the sheep but the camels are the responsbility of a man, or in the case where a sturdy female is capabable of doing it herself.


A camel herder tending to his camels. These are just a few in number suggesting the decline of the this most treasured animal. Over the recent years many nomads have abandoned their hruelling, yet paradoxically pleasant, lives in Miyi and moved to the nearing villages as their camels either died of natural causes or were slaughtered. The decline of the nomadic life is upon us!

The urinating camel on the left has a rope strapped around its belly (if you can see it clearly). This rope is initially tied to its udder then strapped round its belly and hump. This is done when the udders are full of milk and the intention of this is to prevent its young (nirig) from suckling it before its milked. Upon reaching home the camel is milked and then it can suckle its young! This is called Candha-saab.
