Thanks a lot for your feedback/comments.
Adding UK as a "nearby" country would still look a little bit strange,
but if that's how the peering would work to reach other African
countries, it would make sense.
No real country nearby that would have a "direct" (or at least less hops
that going to uk and back) link ?
