Is It Bale Dogle or Baledogle Somalia?


This photo was taken at what I know as Bale Dogle Airfield in Somalia. But every time I look up the place in Google it asks me, “Did you mean Baledogle?” and gives me that search. And Google maps refers to it as “Wanlawayn Air Strip” which may be what it is called now. I know Wanlawayn as the town near the air strip so that makes sense.

I am curious what the locals refer to it as? If you’re in the neighborhood can you ask around for me?

But I do love that thanks to Google I can get a bird’s eye view of just about exactly where that photo was taken.(I was facing NW when I snapped the photo.)
