Assamo the commuter: 19 - 28 May 2013

This monitoring period had two distinct phases.  At the beginning of the period, on 19-20 May, Assamo was located mostly around Obok, in northern Djibouti (See map below).  On the 21st he moved NW to a place near Egahlou (he visited here on 16 May. See previous post).  By the 0830 on the 22nd he was already heading south and west, and between 0830 and 1130 he traveled about 90 km to what appears to be the rubbish dump at the town of Ail Sabieh, then by 1430 on that day he was located just inside the Ethiopian border about 10 km to the south.  This is the beginning of the second phase of this monitoring period.

Assamo's movements started in northern Djibout, near Obok (19 May 2013).  He moved south on 22 May 2013
The second phase of this monitoring period was characterized mostly by Assamo being a commuter to and from Ali Sabieh.  He is what happened:

22 May 1130 in Ali Sabieh, 1430 in Ethiopia
23 May 0530 in Ali Sabieh, 0830 in Ethiopia
24 May 0530 in Ali Sabieh, 1130 in Ethiopia
25 May 0830 in Ali Sabieh, 1430 in Ethiopia
26 May 0830 in Ali Sabieh, 1430 in Ethiopia
27 May 0830 in Ali Sabieh, 0830 in Ethiopia, 1130 back just east of Ali Sabieh, 1430 farther north
28 May 0830 in Ali Sabieh, 1130 back north of town.
