Bosaso is the best city out there, u better visit there, u will have a great time, visit the nice sites, biyo kulule, Laag which is breath taking lake, ofcourse eat out in some amazing restaurants, like Panaroma, and karaame, and others, in Bosaso u will find anything and everything, u dnt feel like ur in somalia at all. and theres no danger there, u can walk in the middle of the nite with cash and no one will ever think of robbing u, people in bosaso are very educated and well of, except ofcourse the refugees from south, who might spoil our peace sometimes. other than that its cool.
and Galkacyo aint that bad, i have a friend who went there and said he never had no problems there, only problems comes from south of the border, although u dont have much knowledge about somalia, am sure u know galkacyo is divided, and theres a greenline which people dont cross 2 the haawiye side, so just stay on your side, and always stay with ur relatives, dont ever act like ur from dibaada or rich with people there, and dont walk with handbag or money.thats just asking for it!
Garoowe nice and quite place, but small.
If your headed 2009 I'd AVOID WESTERN BARI, too many clan clashes. Not a good idea to visit Laag or certain areas of Bosaaso.
With the uprise around Eastern Maakhir (Western Bari), PL and the clans of Eastern Bari are not safe in our region.
