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 20 2013: Dear Awesome Contributors,
    As I am writing this it is 2hrs and 43 mins to the end of our conversation. For the past 1 month your have contributed your thoughts and surely it was an amazing journey to learn different thoughts about Africa. Thanks for taking your time and space to think about our "Beautiful Continent" and sharing your thoughts.
    I will leave you with a quote by one of our contributors Dennis Poriot..... (The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa - Richard Mullin)
    If I don't see you in any other part of the world, then let meet in Kenya...
    Love, Mary
