from the very small amanzi family i recently read a guest post on amanzi down under. i was moved. i was moved by an african post in australia written by an african in britian. and only an african would have been moved. it was about how the rest of the world sees our backward continent and how we continue to love it, maybe against all logic.
i have recently posted quite a bit about the problems which we face (here and here). i have also posted about how much i love this country and by default this continent (here and here). i also recently had a fairly good hearted arguement on another blog about the difference between our sangomas and other "enlightened" forms of alternative healings. one comment was about the fact that those other forms are 'nothing like sangomas'. i could almost hear the comentator saying 'we are western and nothing like you savage africans. i know your sangomas therefore can be nothing like the alternative healers that have my western stamp of approval'.
only an african in africa or in australia or even in britian will be able to understand why i was moved so much by the abovementioned post.
