Africa is more than a collection of unique and mysterious countries. Africa is an experience for the soul. To visit there is to allow your heart to beat in synchronicity with Mother Nature's own heart.
Many of the people of Africa are aspiring to individual greatness with the promise of fresh, new dreams. For South Africans in particular, their recent escape to freedom provides a gauntlet of hope. Now, they're running hard and fast to find the goal. Others are still mired in the poverty their ancestors have always known. Even then, their children have a sense of serenity and peace in their situation, untainted by an alternative perspective. In the eyes of these children, promise still glimmers. Here you find the innocence that is still Africa.
