English: Alcove in Laas Geel, near Hargeysa, Somaliland/Somalia, where Neolithic cave paintings have been found. Original description on Flickr: "The local nomads used this alcove as a shelter when it rained and never paid much attention to the paintings. Recently, a troop of monkeys were based here, but have since been chased away. The site is now guarded by the local villagers who view these paintings as both national treasures and tourist attractions."
Español: Hueco en Laas Gaal (cerca de Hargeisa), Somalilandia/Somalia, donde pinturas rupestres neolíticas han sido encontradas. Descripción original de Flickr: "Los nómadas locales usaban este hueco como refugio de la lluvia sin prestarle mucha atención a las pinturas. Recientemente una tropa de monos se basaron aquí pero desde entonces han sido espantados. El sitio es ahora cuidado por la gente local que ve estas pinturas como tesoros nacionales y atracciones turísticas."
