Djibouti: After five days spent sorting things out on the boat we’re almost ready to leave although we’ve had little time to do any sightseeing. Corinne goes home this evening by plane. Djibouti is a funny place – an ex-French colony, it still has hordes of French military personnel stationed here, as well as several of their ships. There is even a Foreign Legion base. As a result the run-down buildings can conceal excellent French restaurants and the supermarket is the best we’ve seen since, well since France.
