Halfway through Africa
About halfway through her flight in Africa, Amelia Earhart stopped in the town of D’Jamena. D’Jamena is the capital of Chad. It is a port town, but on the river and not the ocean. In the late 1930’s the population was under 10,000 people. Today the population stands at over a half million people. War comes to D’Jamena pretty often. Most recently it was invaded by rebels on February 2, 2008.
