Popular Culture Would you like to visit this area today? I would like to visit West Africa becuase it has a variety of cultures to visit. If you like more traditional places then you can visit one of the many villages. These places are more like farms than cities. They grow vegetables, beans, and other foods. You would definitly see more fields and crops than you would in the city. Then again if you like the city life more you could visit more modern places. These places would have more street and you would see more modern clothing ( like in the U.S.). They also have expenisive cars and houses like many in the U.S. Most of their streets are well- paved and they also have good lighting. They also have wonderful sights. You could choose from the Sahara Desert or the Atlas Mountains, or anything in between. The climate their is nice if you like warm weather. I love warm weather. I can't stand the cold! Skyscrapers
Street Market
Paved Streets
Clean Water
Expensive Cars
