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 13 2013: Hello Mary! Seat down, relax and watch it all to get what I mean by School of Samba in Brazil at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_qVP4DhQuo .

    This one was the winner of 2013 Carnival Parade.
    You'll have to wait a while for the parade to really start parading. Be patient! Ok?

    *** I'll be also looking forward to having you around my place or places, actually. We can make some short trips to beautiful cities such as Ouro Preto, for example. Take care! Love, Gerdson
