Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from the Ancient Greek a- ("not") and methustos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness; the ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. :lol: :lol: wiki

Me and my translator caught the cold in Erigavo its around 12/17 degrees during the day and 4/5 at night. I didnt do Badhan any justice off this video but all my footage are not ment to be uploaded or shared with people online. Deforstation and drought hit the region of Maakhir hard, this summer it was dry. Badhan is Maakhirs 2nd largest town and its outskirts including the town makes it Maakhirs largest.

No it wasnt 5 AM it was around 6 pm before sunset. The drought was bad but during this time its the hottest, but Maakhir has million tuulos outside the large towns so its not necessary to sleep in the middle of nowhere unless you travel far away between large towns, probably Erigavo to Burco. But towards Bari there are a lot of villages where cars stop.

I have Erigavo, but I need to edit it since they repeat names if I were to upload it. I actually met this mayor these kids here kept boasting about. But none of the footage will be posted yet online.
