Expat Living, Somaliland

on all hallow’s eve (much belated)

A few months late, but by no means lacking in enthusiasm, I’m posting photos from our Halloween celebration in Hargeisa. In lieu of pumpkins, since there are none to be found in Somaliland, we carved the most handsome of jack o’ lanterns from watermelons.

Tradition aside, watermelons worked well; their bright red flesh glowed from within, by candlelight. The carving was a contest, and considering the eery beauty across all the candidates, we were unable to come to a consensus on a winner.

So be it–Happy Halloween!

  1. Tusinde tak fordi du tager dig tid til at besvare min nysgerrighed. Ja – det er den superfine frø, der hænger lige i samme vindue som stjernen. Jeg vil straks gÃ¥ pÃ¥ jagt og hÃ¥ber jeg finder ham. Kan nemlig stort set ikke leve uden ham ;-)NÃ¥eh – ikke silkepapir! Tror da lige, jeg skal have fat i pergamyn sÃ¥. Hav en supergod sidste adeÃtnssv¸ndag. :-):-) Lone (Kan kun finde ud af at sende som anonym – mÃ¥ske fordi jeg ikke har en blog……)
