I refer to the world map posted here.
There is an unbroken red stripe in central Africa starting at the Med and extending down to about Cameroon. Nobody has been there and that may reveal a factoid of some sort. I know that the 'crescent' formed by the countries between Ghana and Cameroon (inclusive) have wretched internet services and wonder if this might be an influence. Consider some explanations...
- We have had nationals of those countries (especially Ghana and Nigeria) show up with visa refusals. But for some reason they are not interested in participating in the survey; OR
- Travellers to those countries are road warriors so rugged and weathered that they don't find TSE a useful thing; OR
- Those places are not as interesting as other places (but lots of road warriors travel for width, not depth, so this alternative is disputable); OR
- Some other reason, tell me what it is.
What's a good reason for that distinctive red stripe in central Africa? If it reveals some way to make TSE better or to broaden our user base, then let's find out and put it to work.
