Street scenes from Hargeisa

Hargeisa (Arabic: هرجيسا‎) is the capital of the state Somaliland and the second largest city in Somalia.


This timelapse is a small side-project from a field mission documenting the work of the Finnish NGO Physicians for Social Responsibility - specifically their long-running effort around TB in Somalia.


Creative Commons soundtrack by Project System 12.

P.S. It is not uncommon for words in Somali to have several different spellings in English [e.g. Hargeysa / Hargaysa].
