I have lived in Djibouti since 2004. My husband teaches at the University of Djibouti and our three children attend school at Dolto and Kesel. I am a freelance writer and love to talk and learn about the Horn of Africa. I have learned to run and to cook while living in Africa. I write about running in Djibouti at and I wrote a cookbook called Djiboutilicious, all the recipes use only ingredients available in Djibouti and there are also some local recipes.

Hi Rachel Pieh Jones!

Welcome to and thanks for this introduction ;)


i have lived in Djibouti for last 8 months. iam working for a privae company as logistics incharge. I was in Dubai for last 2 years working in a competitive environment with out rest but once i reached djibouti there is no work pressure, lot of leisure time whihc made to me to adapt to the climate of Djibouti.

I read on your message saying you need people to work in office. I'm currently moved to Djibouti from London and looking for a job. I speak both fluently in English and Somali. I'm able to work under pressure, able to work in a team as well as on my own.

I hope you would consider me for the position and contact me.
My email address is idilabdi1[at]



I've just recently moved to Djibouti. I have family here, so it makes it slightly easier to settle in.

@ Idil Abdi: Please browse through the list of jobs in Djibouti and post your CV in the sector which suits you the most :)
