Michelle Dill Posted 12 months ago 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? I realize I'm probably totally ignorant of what it really is like. I know how the media shapes my perceptions and how warped the perception can be as a result. But yeah, without direct experience I take myself with a grain of salt lol O http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neck_ring Didn't realize until I looked it up that it was an Asian practice too. I really would like to see the pyramids some day. I'm glad female circumcision is so low. It came up in discussion at a class I took in college and freaked me out. I know there are a lot of shots to take if touring Africa from acquaintances that have gone. Lots of prep I understand if you're to go there.
