I was born in Romania, raised in South Korea, spent 3 years in France and I’m currently living Senegal. When we hear the word Africa, most of people who have never been there think the place as an ‘undeveloped’ place where there’s only deserts and forests, animals run around the whole country. At least that’s what my friends thought, including me. But I found out I was completely wrong after actually experiencing. Africa is honestly an amazing place. I still remember the first time I came here, I couldn’t wait to go back to South Korea to see my friends. But now, I just hope we stay here as long as possible. The only thing that kind of disturbs is that it’s hot. Well Senegal is actually pretty decent in terms of heat, since it’s in the coast which allows it to have a lot of wind. But it’s still hot for sure or I’m not sure if it’s because of me. When I talk to my friends in other countries such as in the states, Korea or my friends in Europe, they always say their parents do not want to travel to Africa since they think it’s very dangerous. It is true there are some places that are very dangerous, but at least Senegal, I find it way safer than the states. At least people don’t shoot guns in the middle of the streets. Of course Africa has its own beauty of the nature. I really think this amazing place should be exposed to people more.
