Difficulties Traveling / Best of Africa

You may have a difficult time getting around most of the roads are not paved there are lots of bumps, dirt, also sand.


The things I enjoyed most about this region is that there was always something to do.Everyday you would see something new.You will always run onto something interesting from the parades to the beaches and also the rain forest. I loved the little boutiques they had set up everywhere.You could buy anything ( clothes,jewelry,etc.)
