Locals are both keen and proud to tell you how safe the streets of their capital are. They point to the moneychangers, sitting there with piles of money out on the streets with no obvious security anywhere in sight, as an example.
In watching them for the few days I was in town, however I saw they weren't nearly as brazen with the various hard-currencies they all dealt with as they were with the local stuff. The dollars, euros, yen and so on were kept discreetly tucked away in pockets and folds of robes. It would seem that even in a 'safe' country like Somaliland, it's wise to be cautious with one's money.
