Did the Colonialism start again and someone had forgot to let me know?
I have just came back from a very short trip in South-Africa and Botswana. these 2 amazing interesting and diverse countries kept me thinking and wondering the whole time and doing comparisons with the other two countries in Africa which I have had the luck to visit- Ethiopia and Madagascar. these Lands are so different but sadly the only common feature that I found was that the Chinese are building all of these countries... huge roads, buildings, airports and forests are getting built all over the countries I have visited- all by the Chinese.
in Ethiopia some one told me that he feels as if it is Colonialism all over again, in Madagascar people were complaining about the loss of forest and land and in Botswana we saw a new Hospital being built in the Okavango Delta- this must be good isnt it??
and well it got me wondering- does this happen in all over Africa? why does this happen? are the locals Happy to get a new road or sad to lose there old land. well I have mainly questions, does any one have the answers?
I would be happy to hear opinions from other Africans, travelers or other Africa lovers- is it only me or can someone just tell me- what is going on with Africa..
a pic of the new Okavango Road being built in Botswana. on this amazing road built on sand you can see many workers running after kids pushing home made toy cars trying to drive them on the new tar road.
