Africa is one of the most beautiful places on earth. There are many different cultures living there. Some of them have been around for thousands of years while others are just starting to make their presence known. One thing they all share is the amazing beauty that Africa has to offer. And it’s not just natural attractions either; it’s also cultural treasures like music, art, literature and so much more!
The continent of Africa is home to some of the oldest civilizations in history. From Egypt to Carthage, from Nubia to Ethiopia, these ancient societies have left behind rich historical records that are still being studied today. These civilizations were built upon the foundation of agriculture and animal husbandry. They used plants and animals native to their respective regions as well as imported exotic species such as elephants or hippopotami when necessary.
African culture is diverse and varied. From the nomadic pastoralists of the Sahel to the sedentary agriculturalists of the Great Lakes region, there are countless ways that Africans live their lives.
But what unites them all? What makes them unique? What gives them a distinctive character that sets them apart from other peoples on Earth?
That’s right, it’s their incredible diversity of flora and fauna!
Everyone knows that Africa is home to the Sahara, the world’s largest hot desert, as well as Lake Victoria, the world’s largest tropical freshwater lake. What many people don’t know is that the continent is also home to many different types of flora and fauna. Some, like the baobab tree, are well known. Others, like the prickly pear, are not.
Whether you’re looking for a survival guide to help you identify edible plants or you’re looking to learn more about African culture, this list has something for you.
The most common way to traverse the oceans is by ship. Even in this modern age of jets and missiles people still rely on ships to get from place to place. Oceans cover most of our world and only with ships can you truly experience the boundless waters, the towering icebergs, and the deep trenches. If you like a little adventure in your life, sailing the high seas is for you!
“You can learn all the math in the ‘verse, but take a boat out to sea you don’t know what you’re gonna find.”
-Captain Malcolm Reynolds
Whether you’re a professional like Mal or a bumbling pirate like the crew of Serenity, every captain needs to know the basics of sailing. While the actual process of sailing a boat has not changed in ages, when it comes to vehicles there are two different types: watercraft and airships. It’s important to know the difference when working on your boat (or talking about it).
Most seafaring vessels are classified as watercraft.
