Djibouti City is not necessarily beautiful as it is a port surrounded by wasteland. However, as with any urban environment, there are scenes that merit stopping the car. Whether it’s the daily life of a marketplace or the still of abandoned boats in a shallow harbor, certain scenes give character to a place.
Djibouti has become an extremely busy port as most cargo headed to landlocked Ethiopia arrives in this small country. Ships like the ones above have largely given way to tankers and large vessels as a result.
