Beautiful Africa - a blog carnival

The blog world is full of interesting carnivals, but I as couldn't find a relevant carnival about Africa, I decided it was time to create one. With so much negative information about Africa being portrayed all the time, I thought it would be nice if we could assemble some of those positive stories; stories that highlight Africa's beauty, dignity, variety and culture.

This is a carnival for all of those who have experienced Africa and have been touched or inspired by this so called "dark continent" in any way. You may or may not have been there yourself, it can be about someone else, a story that inspired you etc. The aim of this carnival is to bring forth all the dignity, beauty, variety and human warmth of this huge continent, which is so often neglected in international media today.It's a very open carnival actually - you don't even need to have been in Africa to submit a contribution. All you need is to be positive about it! This first edition will kick off in a few days, starting with "a personal experience of Africa". Anything you have to tell; sharing the magic of this vast continent.

Submit your post/article here! The carnival has three posts so far, two from Egypt and one from Black Africa.

I have a short shorty (flash literature) about a girl from Cameroon in Berlin. Would that meet the carnival requirements?

Here it is:

Hi, I have read ur blog carefully and I must say that I am amazed at what u do. Its not common to find a lady this days that will voluntarily work without being paid to help those in need. Its amazing. I have always wanted to do that and I am beginning to put some things in place.

I will write an article on Beautiful Africa.

Would love it if you took a look at my blog.
