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.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
      Definitely Africa is a continent mostly populated by black man not forgetting African queens...lol....and yes you are right about poverty, war, desert and wildlife. On the other side of the coin, Africa is fulfilled with goodness and greatness that majority of those who have never been there don't know. I would recommend that you visit and even learn more about any African country of your interest.....( You can never been dissappointed watching the animals in their natural habitats and also beautiful sceneries)
      Love, Mary
