A 16-year-old OvaHimba woman cradles her infant in the remote homestead of Otjekwa, Namibia. Driven from their original home near the Namibia-Botswana border by cattle raiders in the mid-19th century, the semi-nomadic OvaHimba migrated to Angola. After World War I, they resettled in a dry, mountainous region near Namibia's Skeleton Coast. The name OvaHimba means "beggars" in an Angolan dialect.

Toiling over large, dust-spewing grinders, workers in the Eritrean capital of Asmara make shiro, a food staple manufactured from chickpeas. The legumes are processed into a powdery, protein-rich flour traditionally boiled, spiced and mixed with butter or oil.

In the vast Kejetia Market in Kumasi, Ghana, women pick their way past an assembly line where shoes are crafted from old automobile tires. Sprawling across 25 dusty acres in the ancient Ashanti capital, Kejetia is one of the largest marketplaces in West Africa.

I've been to that place, it's crazy!

 

It's just behind this train station, the tracks go through the market.

i wish theyd show the more civilized parts of Africa.

i hate when they depict Africa as nothing but jungle people with plates in the lips and shit. i know its more interesting and it is true - but there is more than that. i was glad when i saw the pic of the guy on a motorcycle, but then he had to have a fuckin monkey on it. what the fuck?

 

most Africans seem to hate us over here in the US. why i dont know.

Suge Knight made a point of that on Bill Maher and I was glad he did.

im proud of the history but im also proud of the evolution of Africa, as well. i just dont like how on national geographic and shit they gotta show the woman with the plates in her lips but wont show the African businesswoman as well. I just dont like Africa being made a spectacle, thats all.

 

and what did you say about owning a gun or 23?

i own guns as well. i am not impressed.

Did you actually look at the pictures? There are pictures of modern Africa ... not just "jungle people with plates in the lips and shit."

 

http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/world/africa/images/17a.jpg'>

No jungle people.

 

http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/world/africa/images/16a.jpg'>

No plates in the lips.

 

http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/world/africa/images/18a.jpg'>

No and shit.

 

http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/world/africa/images/20a.jpg'>

 

http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/world/africa/images/22a.jpg'>

WOW! IMAGINE THAT! ELECTRIC SCISSORS!

 

http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/world/africa/images/43a.jpg'>

 

 

And believe it or not, modern Africa includes people with plates in their lips.

I dunno. Modern Africa looks a lot like modern America. Far less interesting than the rituals, beliefs, and ways of life of tribal people.
