I thought what they wrote about me in the publication was quite funny:

Technology A Rat Race Against Death
Jay goes rat-hunting in Angola and finds a reason to give the rodents a thumbs up. IN a country where an estimatated 10 to 20 million landmines are still uncovered 12 years after the country’s civil wart, putting many lives at risk, APOPO, an innovative company founded by a Belgian social entrepreneur, Bart Weetjens, may have found a solution: Mine-sniffing rats trained to de-mine the country’s town and villages.

Maritime Economy – The Dead Port that Rose Again
For centuries, the Port of Maputo was a rich gateway between Africa and the trade winds of the open seas. However, years of civil wat and crumbling decline left the port crippled and all but buried. Tweleve years ago, it woke up to stage one of Africa’s great comebacks. Jay brings the port to life with his delightful story-telling techniques.
