Yes the African continent is a continent full of contrasts, you can find here blacks and whites, rainforests and desserts, animists and muslims.
Poverty-richness, war-stability, cities-wilderness areas, democracy-autocraty and I can go on for hours.
But one thing is sure, this is the most pure and fascinating continent on the world for me.
Myself, I prefer the regions below the Sahara dessert, black Africa as they call it.
Here you can find a list of all the independent African states and I hope I didn't forget anyone.

Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Cote d'Ivoire, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial, Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

The continent of Africa is the world's second largest continent after Asia, with a total surface area, including several surrounding islands of 30,313,000 square kilometres. It stretches from 40 degrees latitude in the north to 34 35' degrees south and has 54 independent countries - 48 mainland and 6 island states - with an estimated total population of 700 million. BLA BLA BLA, BLA BLA BLA. Check it out YOURSELF.

Have fun and I hope my information will be useful some day.

    It’s cold and I'm missing Africa. Boo hoo!!! I want to sweat in a hotel room with no air-conditioning, I want to eat hot spicy food, I want to laugh with the locals till my sides hurt, I want to dance to Congolese music till the sun comes up........and I want some palm wine.....lots of it.

    Here, here, Wafro! I agree with you on the pen and candy thing. It just encourages more aggressive begging.
