somalis returning to the motherland

When people from Somalia move to another country, e.g. in Europe, they enter a culture that is different from what was theirs. They adjust or they clash.

What happens when these people move back to Somalia or Somaliland? Maybe just for a holiday or for a longer period. What do they find when they return to their country of origin.
