Michelle Dill Posted over 2 years 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.
