The face of africa ” There are still today men and women in Africa who are as much part of the land as the fauna and flora, and in many ways they have a strange likeness and communion with them: they belong to their surroundings as do the giraffe or the camel, the antelope, the acacia tree or Kilimanjaro; they belong to Africa”
