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.

    Mar 31 2013: I love everything about Africa especially our music. Here in Abu Dhabi, there was a restaurant in Shangri La Hotel that has African crew members and they performed a lovely African birthday song for my father-in-law and I enjoyed it very much. I'm sure Africa is so much more beautiful than I picture it in my head.

    Since I'm in the Middle East, Africa is closer and I can't wait to go to see your beautiful country. :D
