Second image: The map shows Qandala in relation to Bender Khor, also labeled Boutiala. Boutiala/Botiala is a site of some antiquity. This city is about six miles from the coast , on an island formed by the two arms of dried up Khori , a stream which pours into the sea through narrow and steep gorges. The sea arrives into these gorges, washes to the first huts of the city, maintaining a depth around 5 to 6 cubits or doudouns, which allows small sambucos or dhows to come loaded with mechandises to Bender Khor . Bender Khor is unquestionably the city where the traveller may be the best at what he has before his eyes , refer to the first era of civilization of the people. Four adobe forts guard the gorge, complete with all defence accessories. The cemetery is placed right in the middle of the village and from the mosque, the huts scattered symmetrically under the protection of the forts: …… , contributed to this locality trapped in a huge amphitheatre and a great character that strikes the attention. Here is his drawing of the town of Bender Khor.

Prima immagine: L'immagine è il disegno di una città vista dal mare. Uno degli edifici più alti era ancora in piedi nel 1991. Seconda immagine: la mappa mostra Qandala in relazione a Bender Khor, anche nota come Boutiala. Boutiala/Botiala è un sito antico. La città è a circa sei miglia dalla costa, su un'isola. Il mare arriva nelle gole della costa e bagna le prime capanne della città mantenendo una profondità di 5 o 6 cubiti, che permettono ai piccoli sambuchi (imbarcazione) di commerciare con Bender Khor. Terza immagine: Bender Khor è indubbiamente la città dove i viaggiatori hanno davanti ai loro occhi un esempio della prima era della civiltà somala. Quattro forti sono a guardia della gola. Il cimitero si trova proprio nel centro del paese e dalla moschea , e di un gruppo di capanne sparse simmetricamente sotto la protezione dei forti.
