Working in Dijbouti?

Post Posted: Sun Sep 10, 2006 1:06 pm

Has anyone ever worked or been to Dijbouti? I have a possible job opportunity and there is not a lot of information about the country. I am particularly interested in someone who as worked at Camp Leminiore (sp).

I am from the West Coast of FL and have worked the past year in Iraq. The head/humidity are something that I am used to and need more info about living conditions, the city and people, etc.

Hi, i am currently working in Djibouti in various locations including Camp Lemonier. There is not much to do on base and the US Navy have a 10pm curfew so trips into town are short and sweet. Djibouti is worse than i expected , infact its a dump. But if you are coming here to save money then it would not be a bad move as there is nothing much to spend it on. Depending on which company you work for you may lose some benifits by moving from Iraq to Africa, some of the guys i am working with lost out big time due to the move.
