Twin town: Timbuktu?

timbuktu yesterdayJust saw on the BBC website that Timbuktu is looking for a twin town.

They want somewhere with "a history of being a trade hub and centre of learning, an affinity with the written word, unique architecture and a cosmopolitan background". Oxford must have a good case, surely? Wouldn't that be cool? So far we have Leiden (Netherlands), Bonn (Germany), Leon (Nicaragua), Grenoble (France) and Perm (Russia). I think somewhere with mosques made out of sand would be the perfect complement. I might just write to the council.
