Somalia - November 9th, 2010

The landscape of Somalia appears mostly dry, and consists mainly of plateaus, plains and highlands. The dark, greenish lines parallel to the country’s northern coast along the Gulf of Aden, are the ridges of the Surud Mountain Range.

Visible in the upper right quadrant, on Somalia’s eastern coast, is Hafun (Somali: Xaafuun), a 40 km long low-lying peninsula in the Bari region. The promontory juts out into the Indian Ocean, where it is known as Ras Hafun or Raas Xaafuun (“Cape Hafun”).
