Synopsis
Definition of Djibouti: “1) Formerly French Somaliland, French Territory of the Afars and Issas. A republic in East Africa, on the Gulf of Aden: a former overseas territory of France; gained independence 1977. 8492 square miles (21,994 square kilometers). “2) A seaport in and the capital of this republic, in the southeast part.” http://www.dictionary.com/browse/djibouti R Kirk; Report of the Route from Tajurra to Ankobar, Travelled by the Mission to Shwa, under Charge of Captain WC Harris, Engineers, 1841 (Close of the Dry Season); the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society of London; 1842 R Kirk writes: “Tajurra, situated on the northern shore of the extensive Bay of Tajurra, in latitude 11 degrees 46 minutes 35 seconds north, and longitude 43 degrees 0 minutes 20 seconds east, is a Dankali town, the residence of Sultan Mahomed, a chief of the Adal tribes. It contains about 300 houses, composed of wooden frame-works covered with matting; and has a population of 1200 or 1500 inhabitants, principally engaged in the trade in slaves and salt with the markets of Aussa and Abyssinia. There is no bazaar at Tajurra, but the smaller supplies can be obtained in exchange for beads, buttons, fish-hooks, or tobacco. The anchorage is very limited and insecure during the southwest monsoon; a plentiful supply of water of good quality is obtained from a well to the northwest of the town, near a group of date-palms; there is no cultivation in the vicinity, and grass or forage for horses is very scarce and obtained with difficulty.”
