From the pyramids of Egypt to the sunny beaches of South Africa and from the islands of Tanzania and Madagascar to Sierra Leone and the Ivory Coast and all the beautiful nations in between, the continent of Africa has been enjoyed and admired.
In our world of virtual friends, we have a continuous desire to connect. This desire for connection has sent many searching for a reality unlike that of the west or their familiar cultures. At times, Africa has been their destiny.
Even though the beauty of Africa has been mired with bouts of colonialism, a widely-known massive slave trade, pillaged natural resources, valuable riches, crippling poverty, horrendous genocides, plagues, epidemics, and a population growth that no other continent can rival, the continent still remains, as a whole, one that seeks to uphold the very pillars of a successful culture and people group. Africa has been able to overcome extreme adversity to march on to another day.
