Africa has beautiful cities. It will be interesting to see how they develop as infrastructure improves. Many of those cities look better than American cities from an aerial view.

The big African cities are definitely heading down the Manila, Jakarta, Bangkok route.

You don't say, let's put South Africa aside first but, you don't say, Africa is really blowing my mind, in which Africa had nothing there but poverty, fear and threat of disease.

Some of the cities even have North American features, almost make to Omaha, Des Moines, El Paso, Takoma and even Jacksonville level, again, let's put South Africa aside.

Africa is the most underrated region on the planet in my opinion.
