Land of Africa
Isak Dinesen wrote, "Once you have caught the rhythm of Africa, you find it is the same in all her music". Indeed, it is impossible to walk in the fields of Africa or sleep in the bush beneath a thousand stars and not have all of one's senses electrified by the sheer magnitude of Africa's powerful rhythms. The wild night eyes of the hyena gazing out from total darkness, the sweet scent of the ocher earth, the haunting songs of the schoolchildren, the feel of delicately woven fabric in the marketplace, the taste of exotic curries simmering in a clay pot on an outdoor fire - in Africa, it is possible to taste the rich soil without actually imbibing it, and to feel the kinetic drumbeat throughout one's entire body. To experience Africa is to know true sensory Nirvana.
