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 9 2013: Hey Peter,
      Asante Sana for sharing your thoughts. Yes I agree with your thoughts and I can add the other side if you allow me....." a place where majority follow what the minority"rich" want them to do, without ever challenging the status quo or claiming their birthright". I bet the game of blame is long overdue in Africa, if we are ever to move forward....
      Love, Mary
