GALKAYO, SOMALIA - NOVEMBER 1, 2008: Galkayo airport. Galkayo is in the centre of Somalia, near the states of Hobyo and Puntland, and also near Ethiopia. Despite its strategic location, the city remains very poor, unemployemnt is very high and violence is part of everyday life. Militias are everywhere on the streets. Pirates have a relatively high standing in life there, and are starting to build themselves big houses and businesses with their money, so they now represent the dream of succes for many of the men living in Galkayo.
