Left side of the road? I thought Somalia drives on the right side of the road? (they can't even agree on that!!!)--22.214.171.124 00:55, 19 September 2008 (EDT)
So I'm not really the edit war type, can you stop re-adding the part about "you shouldn't even be here in the first place"? It's irrelevant to the article, this is a guide for those that are going or are there now. Advice in the "Stay safe" section about how to get around, etc safely is appropriate, silly comments in the "get out" section like yours, not so necessary. – cacahuate talk 22:58, 29 March 2007 (EDT)
Having read both articles, Mogadishu and Somalia, they seem to contradict each other. The Somalia page mentions that it is generally accepted that you drive on the left, the Mogadishu page disagrees with this and states that it is agreed that you drive on the right. Although fairly amusing I think it would be more useful if one could be chosen over the other. --Breenie 09:04, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Yes, it could definitely use a rewrite... btw, you have contacted Wikitravel directly :) And you can be a part of it as much as anyone else, feel free to plunge forward and rewrite the section in a more balanced and accurate tone. But please don't delete it all together, there's the makings of an interesting understand section if the right person comes and tackles it – cacahuate talk 15:15, 22 January 2009 (EST)
A well meaning anonymous user changed my text about the Arba-Rucun Mosque from this:
When adding this I had been very careful to try keep in line with the general tone of the article, which I think is wonderful. Does anyone else find the new version dry and encyclopaedic? --Stefan (sertmann) talk 01:19, 2 February 2010 (EST)
Turkish Airlines to Mogadishu?
I am a Turk who visited Mogadishu in 2012, and am sure that Turkish Airlines do NOT fly from Istanbul to Mogadishu. There are multiple ways to go from Istanbul to Mogadishu, but none include a direct flight beween the two cities. One has to go from Istanbul to Nairobi via Turkish Airlines and then catch one of the local flights to Mogadishu there.
That being said, Turkish Airlines plans to commence direct flights between Istanbul and Mogadishu in maybe late March 2012. That all depends upon the safety of the aeroport which does not meet the international safety requirements yet. However, there is ongoing work as to increasing the safety of the aeroport. Once done, Turkish airlines will be able to fly to Mogadishu.
