But don't forget your:

Good humor and sunscreen. - May 2022

Swim suit. - Sep 2020

Water sports gear. If you like to dive, this is an amazing place. - Apr 2018

Snorkel, sunblock, and hats. - Jun 2016

swimsuits and snokels - Feb 2013

beach and snorkeling equipment. I would bring a cooler and some patio furniture. The embassy provides some plastic furniture that breaks due to the hot sun. - Apr 2010

Heavy duty surge protectors and UPS's for your household electronics or they may get fried by regular and extreme electrical spikes. Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen. Beach toys of all kinds. We wished we had a kayak. If you like to camp, Djibouti is good. As someone said: think of it as a two-year camping trip. That is a good attitude to take. You'll live in a nice house with a rough kitchen, and water might run down the stairs like a waterfall the two times a year when it rains. Don't forget mosquito repellent and mosquito netting -we were glad we had ours. Outdoor furniture like hammocks and sunshades was welcome on the beautiful roof-top terraces during the cooler winter months. Bring your mountain bike. Check to see if your housing will have closets -- bring Ikea-style shelving if not. And plan on a rough kitchen so Ikea-style rolling butcher carts and hanging pot racks might help. - Aug 2008

Hat. - Apr 2008
