GO TO AFRICA & DISCOVER A MAGNIFICENT PEOPLE

"People go to Africa and confirm what they already have in their heads and so they fail to see what is there in front of them.

This is what people have come to expect. It's not viewed as a serious continent.

It's a place of strange, bizarre and illogical things, where people don't do what common sense demands."

Chinua Achebe From Nigeria



"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
- Innocents Abroad, by Mark Twain
