Celebrating Somalia

THE Somalia Pavilion in the Africa Joint Pavilion celebrates its National Pavilion Day today.

Themed "Boosaaso: A City With Unlimited Potential," the pavilion showcases this northeastern city bordering the Indian Ocean. It is an example of the importance of geography and culture in Somali cities and shows the impact of various cultures -- African, Middle Eastern, Indian, European.

The round pavilion, both modern and mysterious in sea blue and desert white, features civilization, geography, political views, religion, ties with other countries and sustainable development.

Visitors walk clockwise around the pavilion, starting from a "desert" dotted with camel models.
