How Assamo spent the New Year

Near the end of 2013 Assamo was located in and around the Ethiopian town of Adigala. Then on the 30th, he left and headed back into Djibouti.  The tracking data suggest that he averaged about 30 km per hour during one stretch of the move.  By the 31st he was back in northeastern Djibouti north of the town of Obock, and was there on 4 January.  His last location was about 22 km north of Obock, and about 44 km from Ras Siyan, which is the Djibouti side of the Bab el Mandeb Strait.  We'll wait and see if Assamo makes the jump across the strait this spring.
