“I am a camel herder boy and love being one. I herd 5 days a week with 24 of our camels, roughly 9 hours a day. I make sure they graze the pasture, I talk to them and take in the surroundings, especially in the rainy season when the pasture land comes alive. I eat 2 times a day, once in the morning and once when I get back but in between, I survive on camel milk whenever I get thirsty or hungry. Too be honest, the only time I dislike the rural is when the expected rain doesn’t come, then it’s like hell on earth. When I’m not herding camels, I learn the Qur’an.”

“Waxaan ahay wiil geeljire ah, nolosha miyiga waa nolol wanaagsan runtii. Inta badan, 9 saacadood baan guriga ka maqanahay, sabti ilaa arbaco. Waxaan wadaa 24 geel oo meel ka fog guriga geeya si ay usoo daqaan. Mar mar waan la sheekeysta iyo marku roobka Gu’ga da’o, hareeraha iska daawada. Labo wakhti ayaan wax cunaa. Waa aroortii iyo galabtii markaanu noqono. Hadii aan gaajoodo, hasha ayaan caano kasoo lista. Wakhtiga keli aan naco miyiga waa markii roobkii la sugaayey uusan imaan. Meesha waxay isu bedeley dhulka cadaabta. Wakhtiyada kale aan fasax haysto, Qur’aanka barta.”
