Barry Scowen, who is a British citizen, lived in Somaliland for three years as a child and in this interview, he recounts some of his memories of what was a fond time living in Borama, Hargeisa, and Berbera. He also visited Zeila (Saylac) and other towns in Somaliland.
His father worked in construction and his job was to oversee construction projects of schools, health centers, etc. in these places.
His memories are an interesting glimpse into life there many years ago and it was a pleasure to meet someone who spent time in my homeland many years before me.
