A friend of mine has some disparaging things to say about Africa. All of the diseases, war, inhumanity, and deadly wild life can be a bit oppressive. I try to calm her down. I try to be on Africa's side. After all these are difficult socio-political climates, and people can't just snap out of them. Difficult situations require patience and dedication to persevere. But I've finally had enough.
It all started with that one brave soul from South Korea.* He was the the first person to make my blog international. Since then I have gotten regular viewers in Japan, Russia, Germany, Australia, and eventually Brazil. Some people in New Zealand seem to like me, and I even got a couple of hits from the Northern Mariana Islands. I had to look that shit up. Which is embarrassing, because apparently they're a U.S. commonwealth. Oops.
Anyway, the point is, the only continents that haven't heard of me are Antarctica and Africa. I can forgive Antarctica, because there are only like 1,000 people there, and they're just visiting. But Africa? Seriously. You have no excuse.
Get it together.
P.S. - The South Korean never did come back. I hope he's okay.
*Aren't you proud that I didn't make a Seoul joke? I am.
