Djibouti: Djibouti City

Djibouti City is the eponymous capital of the country of Djibouti, a small French-speaking nation at the critical trade route on the Red Sea, the busiest shipping lanes in the world run here. Its roughly 600k inhabitants represent over 50% of the whole country’s population. The center ville is fairly compact with a grin of streets with some old buildings, hotels, some restaurants and souqs, and a fair amount of government offices.
