Goodmorning Mogadishu – Nov 2012

Images of a prelude short documentary before the Somali Sunrise tour of the new era in Mogadishu since the Al Shabaab has left and a new government is forming. Soon they will be no need of violence and people will find their voice and identity back.

This documentary and images reflect almost a typical day in the life of ordinary to people who make statements for change. Whether or not peace could be won in the city is a matter of the Somalis themselves.

Any financial assistance would be grateful and happy to sell photos to help make this happen and stay in Mogadishu to get stories of hope in a country after twenty years of conflict.
