..From the tantalizing aromas emanating from the souks in Marrakesh,.... to the nightly sounds of grunting hippos coming up from the Ngororongora Crater,...... From the pure taste of Ethiopian coffee... to the blazing colors of the attire parading along the streets of Nairobi... the caressing warm breeze,while sailing down the Nile....
Depends on the country (Africa is not a country but a continent with many countries, traditions, cultures and landscapes). If it is south Africa a think on surf and see.
On the Middle Savanes, lions, elefants.
On east on Muslim Churchs, war, pourverty, etc.
O west I think on Beachs and more savanes, Diamond mining. Also people speaking Portuguese.
On north I think on deserts, snakes. Also on People speaking French and Arabic.
I think of two distinct places. The savannah, the spectacular wildlife, the mysterious jungles, flower and fauna. The continent where all life began thousands of years ago. Then, depressingly I think of mass, never ending poverty, starvation, dictators, disease, apartheid.
It is a place that I have always wanted to travel to, since my pre-teen years. Dangerous, yes. It was not the danger that had attracted me, but for the amazing and diverse wildlife. Certainly not the same as the years have passed. Very sad. (As is Madagascar with the destruction of habitat for the animals there.) It will always remain as a most spectacular place.
