The country of Eritrea is a silent country. We hardly hear about the ongoings in this country. And when I hear stories it are not comforting stories. Stories of repression, of persecution, of dictatorship, about people who try to flee the rugged terrain, to escape from the strong hands of the law enforcers, or are it the strong hands of the impunity-enforcers?

Alganesh Embaye knows her way with c0mputers and words. She left Eritrea where she was born and she moved to Canada. And she wrote and wrote, evoking her country of the past, that is still so present.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
