Water and qat, what pleasure!

Djibouti - water and qat, what pleasure!

The qat arrives from Ethiopia at abot mid-day and by 1 pm it is all over the city. Work comes to a complete standstill - after all it is exceedingly hot and humid - as the men start on their five hour qat chewing sessions.
The problem is getting quickly worse, here as in Yemen and Somaliland.
