The political transition is a significant turning point in Somalia's history and presents an opportunity for real positive change in the war-torn nation. This video presents the voices of hope of Somalis living and working in Mogadishu, from the Deputy Prime Minister and Speaker of Parliament, to artists, students and IDPs.
On 10 September 2012, Somalia announced its first constitutionally elected president in 42 years, President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The transition to a new government evidenced strong civil and political will to transform the country into a nation that is known for peace, not conflict. It followed the approval of a provisional constitution on August 2012 that will guide the development of the new government over the next four years, and pave the way for a referendum where the country's citizens will vote for a permanent constitution.

Episode 5 Info:
2:07 - Bangkok
We saw this huge abandoned skyscraper all the time and wondered if we can get up there somehow. Security was low to say the least, so we just climbed in and walked up the 50 stories to the top to enjoy an amazing view with a few beers.
3:09 - Khao Lak
The beach at Khao Lak was our escape from all the cultural intesive traveling we did before. It was pretty much empty there and could camp right at the beach to hang out with the crew of the "Memories Bar". Didn't film much here, it was leisure time.
3:15 - Similan Islands
We went on a snorkeling trip for one day. Next to the beautiful islands and the blue ocean water there, the ladyboys guiding the trip were a big highlight.
3:29 - Phuket
After a week in Khao Lak we thought we needed to see a different beach so we drove down to Phuket without knowing what it really was. Let's just say we left the next day and went back to Khao Lak. That's how nice it was.
