“Africa has her mysteries, and even a wise man cannot understand them. But a wise man respects them” – Miriam Makeba
“Africa – You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slope lope of a lioness and forget to breath. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water, In Africa there are in descent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa in the midday heart, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world” – Jodi Picoult (American Author)
