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.

    You obviously have a talent for getting people's attention! The group of seniors I mentioned, "Seniors On Net", has the mission of encouraging seniors to forget their age and aches, and use their experience to raise, and discuss, matters of importance to the world. This is a small movement at present but growing - we have links in NY, California, Florida and N.Carolina. We use Skype for weekly discussions, and Africa and its potential is one of our favorite topics. We love the TED Talks concept. If you use Skype, and would like to hear more, send me a contact request at skyport99. Charles
