What I Liked Most About Northern Africa.

What I liked most are the physical features. The way they naturally fit into Africa is beautiful to me. I am not used to having natural resources I rely on, so that is why they amaze me in so many ways. I would love to visit the rain forest to see the different species of wildlife. That is the most beautiful feature to me. I loved the physical features in Africa the most.
