Before I went to Africa, I must admit that I only thought Africa was plagued with death, AIDs and poverty.
Oh, how I was wrong!
Africa is the prettiest place I have been. It is filled with happiness, infrastructure and brilliant minds.
The landscape is simply breathtaking. Nothing like I have ever seen before.
While the people are not as wealthy as the west, they are happier than them. They are not consumed by materialistic things. They live simply, which has led them to pure happiness. Something the west only longs for.
And the country is filled with brilliant minds and innovative technology that has not even reached America yet.
Africa is not a place filled with death, AIDs and poverty. Yes, those things do exist there, but they also exist in every part of the world.
Please help erase the stereotypes of Africa. The continent deserves to be seen for EVERYTHING it is, not only the darkness.
