I have always been a fan of Dan Connell and I appreciate you bringing the often forgotten incredible stories of Eritrea.

Your comments about Africa wasn't that balanced, you kept on saying the story of 'Africa is sad'.

There are countries with troubles in Africa, but there are more than 55 countries in Africa, and you guys seem to haven't visited any part of Africa. I guess what I am trying to say is there is a lot more to Africa than you tried to present it. Take a trip to more countries outside of SA to Uganda, Angola or anywhere with breathtaking beauties and you might have differently shaped opinions.

James you mentioned France has a base in Eritrea @ 01:19:40 minutes in the podcast, that is not correct. France doesn't have base in Eritrea.
