    Ethiopia, at the best of times, is “not for sissies”! One of the reasons I recommended you shipped your vehicle to Mombasa. But you wouldn’t have all those stories of...

    This is a very broad brush suggestion for you - and there still is one month unaccounted for. It is not without errors, I'm sure. But the East African section is predominantly right. You should...
