An Admission

I secretly judge people a little when they talk about Africa like it's one big country. When someone says they're going to live in Africa instead of Ghana or Rwanda or whatever. It just plays into the stereotype a little more that all the countries and all the people are the exactly the same.

If you ever hear me say something about my time there make sure I say Tanzania or Moshi. If I don't, you can let me have it.

Totally know what you mean. I was just thinking the same a few days ago. Do people really think all the countries in Africa are the same? I have to admit though that when I talk to people who I think might not know Tanzania, I use Africa. just easier sometimes and it makes no difference to them. Miss you! need to talk again soon IF I survive exams in the next two weeks.
