Why do YOU love Africa?

Click here to read other people’s thoughts. One of my favorite’s: I love Africa.I do not find it necessary to say more than this. The statement is surely very clear. Sadly, the ‘I love Africa’ competition has not increased my love but rather filled me with dismay and exasperation, as if it is being used as a defensive shield: “I love Africa and I dare you to say a single thing against it, you Traitor!” It is because I love Africa in a deep and manifold sense that I feel I can also criticise the continent when it is necessary (as it often is) to do so.

    hear hear! in a sense we have to become our own strongest critics, when we start demanding the best, that is what we will get.
    thanks for the link.
    (those are many smilies there above the comment box siste!)

    The smilies are all about options bwana…so why do you love Africa?

  • A continent so pure and yet naive, a continent that stands on the gravity of our forefathers and yet African enough to embrace some of todays technological advances. What better place to love?

    What better place to love indeed….

    Love Africa because it survives. Over the years, it has survived colonization, oppression, civil wars, droughts, floods and lack of a voice in the global world. It has survived years of mismanagement. It has survived the coming of age, amidst a global society that came of age at least a century before it. It has survived its own worst enemies, namely its occupants, and it finally seems to be forcing them to love it effectively. I love Africa because it will survive AIDS. And I love it because it’s rich with culture. Also because it definitely is the clearest window to God’s magnificent creation. At this moment, I love and miss Africa the most because it never gets to 20 degrees Farenheit Ever!

    Feeling you on the 20 degrees F!!!! Things don’t seem that bad when it’s 80 degrees outside…in fact I’ve been so in love with the sun since I got back that my family is beginning to think that I’ve become a jungu tourist

  • Why do i love Africa? I echo what mymmoh says towards the end of her answer. It is the clearest window to God’s magnificent creation. I truly believe that. The happiness, the joy, the music, the laughter, the family unit, the comradeship, the survival instinct, the “let us get on with life” mentality. we’ve had our knocks, and my goodness they have been massive knocks, but is there a happier friendly continent?

    No there isn’t…I always get a warm fuzzy feeling whenever I land at JKIA.

    I know am never alone because Africa taught me that l am not my own but l belong to a people that value their own. Africa has many problems but it has a story to tell that the rest of the world can learn from. Soon the world will have to listen to her and learn some lessons of love and hope. Long Live Africa.

    Long Live Africa indeed!

    I love Afrika because it is the most alive, vibrant place that I have ever been. I love Africans because they are survivors, they are elegant, soulful, proud and beautiful. I love the culture(s), art, and music of Afrika. I love the colors, the smell and taste of Afrika. Every time I go there, I love it more. Everytime I leave, I leave behind another piece of my heart.
