'Road' to Elafweyn

4 hours of hot dry endless land with no trees or sign of life in sight apart from the occassional herd of goats and camels!

My colleague, Louise, and I wondered why anyone would freely choose to live in a place so hard and remote. The best answer we got: "come back in the rainy season to know why"...But wait, you just told me, at best, it rains only 5 months in a year! We figured better to stick with the project than ask about a choice made in the 1940s by the first settlers.
