Asilah is a popular seaside town just south of Tangier in Northern Morocco, with walls painted bright white and blue. Visitors in Asilah enjoy walking through the maize of streets in the old medina which has been meticulously restored. The ramparts built around the old town are in good shape, and perfect for sitting on to watch the sunset over the blue Atlantic ocean. The walls go straight down to the rocks and sea below, and offer great views of the fishing boats coming back after a day out at sea. A mile and a half south of Asilah lies Paradise beach, a wonderful wide stretch of sand, popular with local families and tourists from around the world.
I honestly don’t know where to start. So on Friday evening on my way home in traffic, I had tuned in to 93.7 Rhythm FM as usual every 5.30pm to listen to sharing life issues with Chaz B in collaboration with Chike and Stephen with the ‘PH’… You see I was one of the faithful listeners and never really got around calling, but I was impacted by listening.
Leaving the German town of Swakopmund, travel inland towards the Damaraland region of Namibia once inhabited by the ancient bushman. It is here where you’ll score an awesome look into the art of the ancient civilizations (Thelifescape.com, 2014).
In Africa there are many ways to greet parents and elders. In most parts of Africa, they Kneel to their parents or elders.
My reason for this post today is mainly to let people know who don’t already know, how people from different Countries in Africa really are, as a lot of people judge people from Africa before even getting to know them!
I am NOT Generalizing Africa as a whole, I am talking based on MY experience with people from ALL over Africa not only one or two countries in Africa, this is why I used the term “People of Africa”.. This post is not about one country in Africa, its about MANY countries around Africa.
Bellafricana was amongst a few artisans that were at the Chevron bazaar held in Lagos, Nigeria on the 13th of November, 2014. My team and I were there to represent Bellafricana including various other creatives present to exhibit from arts, crafts, sculpture, textile, gift items, paintings, beads, baskets and many more. Great talents in Africa I tell you.
I had to save some beautiful pictures to share with you. I absolutely love them all and I’m sure you will too.
