Timbuktu (also Tombouctou or Timbuctu) is a Tuareg city on the Niger River in the West African country of Mali.

Understand

Its long history as a trading outpost that linked black Africa below the Sahara Desert with Berber and Islamic traders throughout north Africa, and thereby indirectly with traders from Europe, has given it a fabled status. Combined with its relative inaccessibility, "Timbuktu" has come to be used as a metaphor for exotic, distant lands.


Hey! Timbuktu sucks! Come to Steinbach, instead!!!!!!!
