The "well" of Bouctou
africa, horizontal, mali, subsahara, timbuktu, photograph
Timbuktu, in French ("Tombouctou") means "well of the woman named 'Bouctou'". And "Bouctou" is a word that means, "belly button". On the right is a picture of the original well that was owned by the woman named, Bouctou

(because of her great belly-button), and it was the meeting place for tradesmen who would travel across Africa from the North, East and South, to barter their goods with the West Africans, who came from...well, West Africa. Because Timbuktu is so remote, and so desolate, and incredibly difficult to get to—not just because of the terrain and heat (110 degrees is common), but because of the bandits who would rob everyone going in and out of the city— rumors spread about the true nature of the city. It had been said that it was a land of wealth and gold, where everyone lived on high. Uh....not exactly... But, it has rightfully retained its reputation as being the most distant place in the world. In fact, it wasn't till the 20th century that a European or an American ever made it back from Timbuktu.
