We have a misconception that Africa always means poverty, underdevelopment, heat, dryness, disease and war.
However, Africa consists of the Continent, Atlantic Ocean, India Ocean and islands scattered in the sea in which different peoples and cultures are born.
It is a tunnel vision to judge a person from the color of skin and tell the Continent through only one place.
Northern Africa on the coast of Mediterranean Sea shares the same climate with Italy and Greece.
Go southwards, Sahara Desert and Sahel is dry land throughout the year.
The coastal land of the Gulf of Guinea and Congo Basin are covered by massive tropical rainforest.
The climate in East African Highlands is agreeable all year round.
Penguins can be seen in South Africa and coast of Namibia (No Penguins in Madagascar by the way).
The beauty of islands in Indian Ocean is comparable to that in Southeast Asia.
The poverty, underdevelopment, heat, dryness, disease and war are facts on the Continent, but not everything.
Africa is of great difference in each region and can not be summarized in one word.
