Same here.

In my West Philadelphia neighborhood there is a large number of Ethiopian/Eritrean immigrants and we have not only several E/E restaurants, but grocery stores and bars as well. I find these people especially courteous and friendly.

I've already been to Egypt (twice) and Morocco (three times) ... does that count?

Of course it counts, as those places are African countries.

Technically of course they're Africa, but I was more thinking of sub-Saharan African, since those countries tend to be culturally more Mid-Eastern.

Some people need to be realistic,there is poverty everywhere
The worst is poverty in wealthy countries,no asian or african tourist will complaint about misery,homelessness in New York,Atlanta,Paris .
So it's sounds funny how people react to this situation in Africa and not elswhere

Hopefully I will someday! But I'm not sure if it ever happens.
I'd prefer to see "real" Black Africa, countries like Ethiopia, Eritrea, Mozambique, Tanzania, Angola, Senegal, Gabon...
Well, at least one of them.

As for the Northern Africa, it's more affordable and easy, but somehow those countries do not really attract me at the moment. Maybe it will change in the future, though.

North African countries are usually more expensive than the rest of Africa (with the exception of South Africa)

With the exception of Nigeria,South Africa and Gabon,North African countries are usually wealthier than the rest of Africa.

Easy,meaning easy to access ? yes,North Africa is closer to Europe,of course the trips are shorter,cheaper and more frequent than for rest of the continent.

Sorry,North African countries are culturally african,berbers are native of Africa,and not the middle eastern.
North africa has also some french influence,why don't we call North Africa,Europe in that case.
Nigeria speaks english,we don't call it anglo-saxon,everybody on this planet has some kind of cultural influences

I visited North african countries and West african countries but most african americans are related to the west africans countries (Ghana,Cameroun,Senegal,Nigeria,Sierra Leone and mostly from Benin,former empire of Dahomey).

No known slaves came from Ethiopia,Somalia,Tanzania and East Africa
