1992-94 – Somalia

From December 1992 until March 1994 I was working as a UN soldier in Mogadishu, Somalia. The United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM) was established to end war and starvation, and counted about 30,000 soldiers from all over the world.

The Norwegian mission numbered 74 soldiers to start with, and was doubled after 6 months.

When I was working as a driver at the Military Intelligence Office, I got a chance to see most parts of the city.

I also had the chance to see more of Somalia than just Mogadishu.
