Incredible Africa

How much do we know about African countries ?

I guess usually we know nothing. Again, all the time we are joking about Americans who know only about America, but we also study only European history, European Art, European Culture, European geography. You can argue with me, that now our schools are teaching Malawi or Burkina-Faso geography and history in depth, but I doubt this fact.

We are too far from these 53 countries, we are too far from our wealthy cabinets and luxury cars. We had used to exploit African resources during colonialism, and continuing heavily to use them now. White masters men sitting in cabinets divided territories despite of the ethnic settlements, guys who never been on the place took the map and drew borders of new countries.

African Nature

I’m not insisting for anyone to feel sorry for African people, change life and go to help people in Africa. Only heroes will do, I’m not. But I want to clear huge informational gap, lot of African stories remain unknown for the wide public [including me]. I have an idea to create 53 posts. At least one post for one country, or more.
