Return from Djibouti

(BRUSSELS2) I have just returned from a short stay – with my comrades from the 65th session of the IHEDN – in Djibouti. Fully profitable, interesting stay, with hosts – the FFDJ French forces in Djibouti – who bent over backwards to show us the full range of their know-how, including a 4-hour trip to the “desert” of Grand Bara and surrounding areas, as well as at the inter-arms academy of the Djiboutian army (AMIA), which will undoubtedly leave more than one memory for all of us. And above all enough to write several posts: on this training ground that is Djibouti, on the fight against piracy, on the foreign bases established in the countries... They will be published gradually during these Christmas holidays, which myself and Damien – who has been by my side during these last months – wish you as beautiful and excellent as possible.
