Capturing the essence of Africa on paper without using all the topics in the book? No other continent comes close to her on the stairs, the variety and impact pure, raw. Africa offers a travel experience of a thousand miles of good backpack, air-conditioned tourist trails of Southeast Asia or the theme parks of the cash cow of Australia or Europe.
The natural history of Africa alone will make a dozen visits worthwhile – elsewhere in the world can fall asleep to the sound of roaring lions, or see a million flamingos take off from the waters of a remote soda lake ? The parts of a landscape so spectacular display of time will condemn Africa near his mind, but the essence of this continent is not unbelievable in any desert, mountain or a lake. It is the spirit of the people – pushing, shoving, sweating, dancing, singing and laughing – that infects so many visitors with a travel bug so powerful that they will never come back, sometimes against all sense or reason.
Debate with venerable merchants among the cold and narrow streets of a medina Arabic dance hits of reggae beats that come from a market stall in West Africa, or chatting with the fishermen of India under the palm trees of the ocean, and he was beaten mostly good for honesty, effusive and vitality of African peoples.
Africa is not always an easy place to travel, can be frustrating and difficult at times. The logistical difficulties and disasters can occur. But do not believe everything you see on TV: Africa is not a hell hole full of civil war, plague, famine and violent crime. It is a fantastic, enlightening continent, surprising and intriguing. Try it once, and we guarantee you will dream of returning for the rest of his life.
