Yes, I've seen "enough" of Africa to make an adult decision that it's not a worthwhile part of the World for which to return and spend money. It's my opinion; same can be said for a handful of individual countries outside the African continent: India ... over 1 Billion people and very diverse; no matter - prevailing atmosphere is not appealing.
I'd rather provide perspective to would-be travelers that includes BOTH the good and bad. The likelihood of getting mugged, bribed, kidnapped, or worse is high in many parts of Africa. I would think that most people would do their homework and plan any trip with diligence, but alas there are many tales of grandeur that can all too easily cloud the full picture.
I'll respectully refrain from further posts in this thread; even though this forum is meant for discussion and varied opinion + feedback. I fully realize that my viewpoint and experience doesn't jive with your narrative.
