  • Yes, I have a home in Africa. I love it. We go there every year, I spent 3 months over there this year. Half of my family is there, we live right off the Mediterraneansea, the fresh food, no snow, universal health care... lot's of reasons I would move there!

  • Where in Africa? The continent is extremely diverse, living in the middle of the bush in Botswana would be different than in Casablanca or Johannesburg.

  • I don't think I'd want to live there, but I love to do an extended stay and volunteer and help out in some of the more needy parts.

  • I would if I could give something positive to the economy, like being a teacher. A friend of mine from high school moved herself and her twins to Tanzania. She works for World Health. I wish I could have such a positive thing to do for other people.

  • When I was little, my dream was to be a missionary in Kenya. I would love to still go one day but it doesn't look like that will happen anytime soon. My friend just left for a teaching job in Ethiopia, so I am hoping to visit her someday. Although, Kenya will always hold a special place in my heart.

  • no, diseases, man-eating wildlife, just the whole thing scares the crap outta me for some reason. I don't even want to visit there even to see the Pyramids.

  • You are right ballewal! I forgot to ask where!!!.... When I was in the States, the whole idea of Africa... was related to wild animals, and poverty...... But now that I live in Congo..... you don't see much of wild animals unless you go to a National Park, or to Kenya & Zambia!!  Africa has beautiful places such as Cape Town, Joburg, etc, etc...

  • I'm not sure I would want to live there, but I would love to visit to provide assistance and to go on a safari.
