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 17 2013: Kama is the real name of the African continent. Africa is the name the colonists gave to the continent, but Kama is the ancestral name. Every time i hear Africa i think "they mean Kama" but they don't know.

          I have learnt something about Africa that I did not know. I will research and familiarize myself more. Thanks for educating me.
