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.

      I agree that poverty is one problem that Africans need to address...living in one of the most endowed continent it does not add up why Africans are sooooo deprived......Wake up call
      Love, Mary
