Lost city in Darfur over 8 years ago


This town is signed on an old Soviet map as ‘Саадун’ (Saadun). Proof:–c35-08.gif There is a little difference in coordinates (11.27/25.13 in OSM; 11.16/25.08), but remember: - there was no GPS at Soviet period, so little mistakes are possible; - Saadun looks like your unknown town: angle of street grid, empty NWW part of town, little river on the north side.

Well, there is a town Sa’dun on another map:

Probably, “Sa’dun” is an old name of ‘Gereida’, such as ‘Leningrad’ and ‘Saint Petersburg’ in Russia?

Please excuse me if I’m wrong.
