(Italy) and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).
"You are an
idiot liar. You are simply blindly admiring them because you are a spy being
paid and allowed to play in the country. But I warn you again: you will pay unsubntiateted
price very soon. You need a good correction factor and I promise you, you will get
it soon. My message to you is now simple: Either you remove your page or you will face consequences...."
you think of and write about Eritrea, the Eritrean government, and how people live there,
what the sources of the challenges/problems are etc... are anything but
far from the truth. If you would publish something positive about Hitler and the
Nazis, the authorities in the west will track you and bring you down. But
now since it's about the tiny and poor nation called Eritrea, you think you are free.
Check the content of your website, and correct it, before you add anything
new to it. Be responsible for all what you write and publish".
WARNING: to meet the
demands of some Ethiopian readers of our travel stories and Eritrea
information pages, I would like to state that this story is biased and
subjective, starting from day one. There may be ugly old women on your
flight, holes in the Asmara streets, neglected buildings and many other
items that these Ethiopians would love to see. The pictures on this, and
the next 13 pages were selected by "Mr. Eritrea lover" (my
Ethiopian nickname) based on technical and esthetical quality,
representing the best things in life I observed in Eritrea, and are not a
random representation of what I observed.
