Where is this location? In the background are what look like three or four sandy roads heading uphill and away from the photographer. These may be the outskirts of Mogadishu at the time.

Note the silver jewelery worn by the women. Similar if not the same as the item below, in the case of the women on the left (click to enlarge, twice)
