If you are big juice fan, you are in for a treat in Hargeisa. All over town there are places selling juice, from the small corner shop to the nice hotel. And we are not talking about boxed juice from concentrate here – it is juice that has been freshly squeezed that day. The flavours I’ve seen include orange, mango, papaya, guava, prickly pear, and the so-called “cocktail” (meaning a mix of different juices).
Just down the road from our house is a small shop with a comfortable seating area inside that sells juice, tea, drinks, sandwiches, sambosas, and other snacks. We go there often for an afternoon pick-me-up. The juice costs only 2,000 shillings ($0.33). Slurrrppp!
