If you have NEVER been to Africa, when someone mentions "Africa" or you hear "Africa", what is the FIRST thing that comes into your mind?

People associate different regions/continent based on media, informational material, myths, stereotypes and such. The main idea of this discussion is to find out what people who never had "first hand experience" think about the continent. Thanks for your contribution.

      I am glad you love the topic. The discussion was mainly for people who have never been to Africa...however, I have some people who have been there and have contributed to the discussion. You are welcome to contribute your experience and insights...though you are from SA.

      Love Mary
