The Other Side of Africa


The Other Side of Africa


For years (and still) Europeans and Americans call the African continent as Dark Continent. But poverty and food crisis is not the African monopoly. These two remain major problems in many parts of the world. On the positive side, Africa is also bestowed with great wealth and jaw-dropping natural wonders that are worth seeing.

Like many Asian, European and American countries, Africa too have areas dominated by the rich and wealthy men. Here are some of the pics from different parts of Africa that may compel you to change the image that you carry in your mind.
