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: He is going to school right now. I have every confidence he will continue to be successful and happy. Through him I have learned much about Ethiopian and its proud ancient culture. I would assume he's planning on settling here -- his American born daughter is almost five years old now ;-)

      Thanks for replying again. Kudos to your brother and I wish you and his family well. Ethiopian are beautiful nice people....I like their "injera and meat"
      Love, Mary
