Learning expands great souls

Well hello there, wishing all of you a great new adventures in life and love in 2015. The title of my post comes from a beautiful Namibian proverb, African proverbs and literature are a testament to the beauty and complexity of the continent's history and culture. In'sha Allah 2015 will be a year of personal growth and expansion of knowledge through trials and travels. Today, I would like to profile the regality and beauty that is East Africa, Ethiopia and Somalia in particular.
