The guide has been interesting but One more concern, it does not address how to access internet when travelling in Africa.

The only place I've been in Africa is Tanzania and - a long time ago - Tangier. I read the writeup on Tanzania but although it went through vaccinations for tetanus, and yellow fever, etc. and precautions for malaria, it didn't address the tse tse fly. If I knew anything official about it, I would add it to the write-up, but I don't. They told me that I should not wear blue because it attracted the tse tse fly, but the local people do not abide by that restriction and I can't see why the flies would be attracted to blue - it doesn't seem logical as there are very few blue animals.
