If you have an interesting product and some respect for your potential
customers, you will first check who is your relevant contact in Eritrea, and address him/her in

will find my name (which is NOT feedback ;-), and you are contacting the
webmaster and not the Eritrean authorities.
Many Eritrean tourism service providers and
small business have a page on Facebook, where you can leave a message, and
have a glimpse of your potential contact.
