Urban diasporas: the case of Somalis
“I’d been in London for a week, and I still hadn’t seen anything of the city. I could have been anywhere—England, Australia, Minnesota—but I had the impression that I was in Somalia: all the shop owners are Sikhs or Benghali but there were also call centres, Money Transfer outlets and Somali-owned restaurants, and locals too. Veiled women, children of all ages pulled along by hand or in their strollers, youngsters, elderly folk, and everyone saying hello to each other as though they were in a small town.”
