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.

    Apr 2 2013: The first thing that came to my mind when I asked myself this question is wildlife, I see a green tree I don't know the species. The weather is cool sunlight is bright yellow in color. And there are some animals grazing. This is the picture which I see whenever I think about Africa.

      100% right on your first thoughts. Yes animal grazing in open space is very common in Africa. And yes...trees of different species...wildlife....lovely tourist attraction ( I am enticing you to visit)......I would bet on average Africa has the best weather in the world...
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts...

      Love, Mary
