SOL had given me this profile picture. Coincidentally, this picture was taken in mid 1960s in the vicinity of Waajid, Bakool, Soomaaliya. That deegaan is the birthplace of my mother, as though SOL knew that this geeljire could be a long lost adeer/abti. :D

 

I had seen this picture years ago online, so I had to dig a little bit on google. I finally found the original image, which is:

It came from this website, which has historical pictures of Soomaaliya from 1964-65.

Bakool and Djibouti have a lot in common when it comes to Somali tradition. Great history and Somali culture.

MMA,

 

I did mention in one of the earlier threads that when  I traveled between Daafeed and Baidoa in the middle of eighties that the camel boys were tall with big afro hair like this guy.

 

It fits well of A typical Somali nomad

You hadn't seen mine. See the above post. I am one of those nomads.

 

No way! In which picture, the first or second? I’m guessing you’re the guy with the biggest afro in the first picture. The one in the middle.

^ No, they use wax to style the hair. Wax can give all hair textures a natural lift.
