Janelle, the rookie blogger, is attempting to question how the West views Africa.
I’ve travelled around the world and I’ve seen a lot of things, and the more I learn about life, the more I realise how little I know. But I’d love to teach you some of what I do know. Like here, you can learn some important facts about Africa. And here, you can learn the essentials of Canada. Basically, prepare to be educated as well as entertained.
Mostly, I want to puzzle over these things. Why are we so ignorant? Why do we pretend we’re not? Maybe, if we keep talking about it, somewhere along the way we’ll learn something: about ourselves, about the world, about humanity.
