The state department's recommendations before traveling to Somalia are wild: draft a will, appoint a family member to be the point of contact with hostage takers, establish a proof-of-life protocol so your family knows how to confirm you're actually alive if you're taken hostage, leave a DNA sample with your medical provider in case they need to identify your body, draft a plan with loved ones regarding care of children and pets. Sounds like a good time.

You could add that Mo Farah was born in Somalia. You could include Siad Barre on the quiz as well, and/or al-Shabaab.
