If you are interested in the real Africa, her people, nature, history and any other information, do a bit of research into the manifest, diaries and writings of the "old African travellers and explorers.These people write down what they see and experienced, with little or no political agenda, and these observations contain the uniqueness of un-bias African knowledge.
Through the 30 odd years of travelling, exploring Africa and the world, I have met a few interesting people in my life, ranging from Head of States, famous actors and actresses, Royalty, and then the odd world criminal, even a "freedom-fighter" or two! One thing they all have in common: Each one has a story to tell!

"In these days of strive and conflict we so easily forget, to see the humanity in our fellow humans. To each, our life's road, seem very normal, even ordinary. Yet, to others, it might seem an adventure, a dream fulfilled. When life's road has been done, no monument or fame could capture our name that well as the loving memory in a friend's heart." : Quotes by Chrigi-in-Africa.
