My uncle used to be the the police chief in late 1980s and we were taken there couple of time when schools were closed. I loved Dhuusa-Mareeb and Guri-Ceel. The latter is an wondeful place with thick, red and strong sand with plenty of Caano-Geel. I know for sure that Dhuusa-Mareeb is full of uranium and all kinds of expensive and precious stones. In the middle of the day, you will see stones cracking up for no obvious reasons. I heard other stranger stories about the Dhuusa-Mareeb stones where some of them shine at night or something like that.
Even though I was a kid, but I rememer it as though it was yesterday. I remember one night where the Heegan Band performed and our uncle took us to the concert and even today I remember one of the songs Ibraahim Baadil sang that night. If you know me in person you would know I love this song cuz I sing it all the time. The only problem though; I never fall love with a girl by the name of Maryan. There are too many songs with Maryan and I can't find me a Maryan that I like. I can find plenty others but not Maryan.
Here is Ibraahim Baadil's Maryan Song:http://www.geocities.com/heesso5/waxaan.ram
