Yeah, there are only 55 countries with wildly differing visa requirements and laws to navigate. Knowing all of them would be some achievement.

Were they high though? Here in the Caribbean many bars are high, most full of people smoking dodgy things, a few just high because on a beach in winter bars get wet easily so high stools are in order.

who cares? this thread is ancient! They'll all be over in Europe anytime soon anyway so if Africa is empty it'll be largely "safe".

Hmm, well, in the uk, africa is a few suburbs of london, which as people who know will agree is the entire planet in miniature. Long may such diversity and actually a lot of tolerance remain. How else do they get the most diverse quisine on the planet.
