Here, the Icelandic cartoonist Hugleikur Dagsson breaks down civil wars nicely - in my interpretation: Jeeps & Guns. For Men With Small Dicks. Or as a South Sudanese photographer friend just explained to me (with a reference to the international media arriving in South Sudan with huge amounts of media equipment): 'it is better to have a big dick and a small camera'.
Friday night I took the bus 5A through a good stretch of Copenhagen, and fell into conversation with two Somalis, sitting opposite me. The conversation evolved around East Africa, amongst others on the recent bombings in Nairobi. Our conversation then included a second passenger, a British climate researcher attending a conference in Copenhagen, and who had done fieldwork in Ifakara - and just wanted to say that 'Tanzania was pretty good. Then a Tunisian, who greeted the Somalis with a 'tamam' (as they also do in South Sudan), were let into our conversation. He explained his Danish wife had worked at the Danish embassy in Dar es Salaam.
