"In this trip of traveling 11,301km across Africa, I have enjoyed the spirit of African hospitality that I never knew existed, people are nice, I did not experience any insecurity issue as portrayed in the western media as Africa being a hotbed of evil.
"Rather when I had a tire issue in the middle of the night people that I thought i was supposed to be afraid of as portrayed in the western media, came to my rescue.
"And in spite not being able to communicate in their local dialect, they did not make me feel unsafe, rather they warmly accepted and helped me. To me that is humanity in Africa!
