The Pirates of Somalia
Jay Bahadur is a graduate of the Faculty of Journalism. In several print media, he sent out examples of his work, but so far has not received a positive response. The guy has to work for pennies, conducting marketing research for the manufacturer of napkins. Time goes by and there is no work, this situation does not inspire optimism, besides, Tracey's school friend left for Stanford, and this is even worse. Scouring the snow around the house, Jay got a stretch and was forced to seek medical help. In the doctor's office he met writer Seymour Tolden. A well-known colleague said that the seeds of success are sown on the spot. The young writer decides to go to Somalia to write a book about the terrible dream of modern seafarers - pirates. The guy was lucky, the conductor introduced him to Strati, the son of the current president, and he arranged a meeting. The head of state turned out to be quite adequate, educated man. Somalis do not consider their fellow citizens attacking ships as renegades, on the contrary, in their opinion, these are African Robin Hoods. Jay manages, as a Canadian writer, to make his way to the pirate field camps to see their life from the inside.
