For the first part of our deployment we made ourselves at home at an old USSR air base called Baledogle. Just down the road was the town of Wankawayn which we always referred to as “Wally World.” It was the only town in the area so even though it was small we spent a fair bit of time there.
This link will take you to Wankawayn on Google Maps. And you will see just how in the middle of nowhere it is.
This photo is the front of a movie theater that was in town. The films seemed to change about once a week. I never did get to go inside to see what a Somalian movie theater was like. Nor am I sure what language the movies where in.
