Just touched Africa, not enough to form my own experience of it, yet heard lots of stories about it : how the heart smells after the rain, how beautiful the sunsets and how warm the people.
It's a place where ends meet, where our innate idea of Eden is closer to reality a place filled with wonderful creatures and breathtaking landscapes and at the same time hell on earth, deserts, refugee camps, famine and war.
Africa is our present, as much as it's sold as the past or the future.

  1. I've never been. I do think Africa will see incredible attention and hopefully good changes in the next decades. Friends told us it's the most beautiful place they've seen. And also, as you say, the center of the worst of human hell. This mustic, at least, is relaxing.
