Somalia - December 27th, 2010

The Surud Mountain Range appears as a green line parallel to the northern coast of Somalia on the “Horn of Africa”. The horn is a peninsula in East Africa that juts hundreds of kilometers into the Arabian Sea and lies along the southern side of the Gulf of Aden.

With the exception of the green mountains, much of the rest of the peninsula appears covered by tan and red terrain. The red land belongs mostly to Ethiopia’s Somali Region, while the tan terrain is part of Somalia.
