It's been quite a ride. I've loved seeing what everyone has come up with regarding pop culture in Africa. There have been such a variation of themes from Indian Moms (we know the Indian culture is a big part of Africa) to online dating, Grey's Anatomy, the real side of Africa and Rom-Com movies. As colourful as the continent, so has this blog hop been. Thank you so much to the authors for their excellence, dedication and camaraderie in this blog tour. It's been a wonderful experience and I hope those who have participated have enjoyed it, too.

Well, I've come up with something that epitomises the Ubuntu line: What I Love About Africa. Semhar Araia got #WhatILoveAboutAfrica to trend on Twitter in 2011. Okay, I know that's a long time ago, but I thought it was so cool. Read here.
I don't know if you get them in your news feeds on Facebook, but I like these funny or beautiful pics of Africa on Facebook, called "Africa, this is why I live here." Here's an example of one that's very funny and true to life in parts of Africa (and pop culture):
You have to check out some of the scenery photography on the "Africa, this is why I live here" Facebook page.
Firstly, I want to put my own "What I Love About Africa." I may not live in this continent the rest of my life, but I will always hold special memories from my experiences here.
Africa, a place of sunshine, of warmth, of friendship on many levels, of breathtaking sunsets, of quiet moments to ponder in the wild countryside, a place steeped in culture from centuries of people so like us and so unlike us in many ways. Africa is a place to rest your head, a place to put down roots and a place to discover. I don't think I would grow weary of discovering this continent and all it's mysteries. It's a place of modern, urban energy mixed with wide open spaces that go on forever.
I would love to hear from others in the comments below what they love about Africa, even if you've never touched the rich soil of Africa with your footprint.
