by Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante:
While in Somalia, I participated in a sort of mini-documentary on the experience there with Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change.
We were only there for two days… and for good reason. It was probably the least comfortable place I’ve ever been, as bombs were going off regularly right around us and machine gun fire rang out through the night.
Luke is an unbelievably professional independent journalist and put this entire video together by himself, including filming all the footage.
I wouldn’t have believed one person could do so much in such a short period of time… but Luke’s been doing this for nearly two decades.
I think he really captured the story of what is going on in Somalia quite well.
You can see it here:
I’m currently in Harare, Zimbabwe, and quite happily so after being in Somalia. Luke and I have a new saying, whenever something sucks we now say, “Well, at least we aren’t in Somalia!”
