The Sahel - Islam's natural boundary


The Eritrean-Ethiopian highlands are the major Christian exception to the rule (I believe their religion is that of the Copts with the same exceptionalism) whereas the mercantile Arabs were able to spread their faith to the south eastern coast.

Africa is a continent apart - I just arrived in Nairobi for the weekend and I'm very impressed by it - some areas more than trump the subcontinent.
