In the north we use the following;
Tuweel = towel
Tamandho = tomato
Laydh = light

All bililiqo from English
 
Does any Somali who speaks xamar dialect know how to spell the word for this kind of headscarf?

In waqooyi they say something like massar and in xamar we say faselletee (can't spell it). The xamar version comes from Italian

Cape Guardafui (tip of the Horn) means Look and Escape in Italian (because it's so dangerous)

The Cape Guardafui lighthouse has a fascist design :dead::
