Africa is really suffering right now, and not just west Africa. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t realize how big Africa is and in the midst of all the news about Ebola, many have canceled their trips, even to east and southern Africa. Africa is so large that it could fit both the United States and Europe inside it, with plenty of room left over. So to not to go to southern Africa because of disease in west Africa is like not traveling to Los Angeles because something is going on in New York. All to say Africa is still a great unknown to many people, and there’s a lot to be learned.

Well, here’s a guy (Francis Tapon) who last year started a four-year adventure that’s taking him across all 54 countries in Africa and documenting it. He doesn’t blog that often (but does at least monthly) but is calling his epic journey The Unseen Africa, which is unfolding, at least for now, on his site.

    Africa is so large that it can actually fit the United States, India, China, Mexico, Japan, and all of Europe. Remember to support fair travel when traveling.
