The Somali Green Salad!

Recommended Posts


After being invited by an Arab and given Arabic Coffee.... three cups of that concentrated coffee at 2200 tonight, I come back home and I try to sleep, guess sleep at all, so after hours of miserable qalaamo-rogad, I decided to do something useful until morning and go to work,...Anyhow,,I was listening to some old Somali songs..and then I remembered The only other thing that can make feel this sleepless...The Somali Green Salad!...Oh the Teenage days, When Trying it was utmost form of Manliness, Sitting in some Maqaaxi on the other side of town (making sure you don't run to someone you know) listening to Qaraami songs on Panasonic Radio and drinking some nice Shaahii Barjaha....iyo waliba bacdii la isku ruugi jiray!!!....Bitter-sweet memories, ...But Hey, Everyone is entitled to some out of the rule adventure when they are young...So that you don't get back to it in midlife crisis.


For those who don't know, This is the Somali Green Salad...Served with Shaah (actually only Hayl iyo sokor)....In some way The Somali Salad is concentrated Qahwa.

Absolutely revolting. The sight of a grown man chewing greens is sickening.

LOL, the sight of a sickened youth is marqaan-jebis. I'm sure you didn't accidentally stumble onto these green-chewing men, you should have saved yourself the revolt and avoided the situation.
