Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

... mingling with middle class Africans ... where the middle income class is far above the median and more like a 19th century understanding of a "middle class" ...

... how many middle class Americans or Europeans actively seek out the company of international tourists as we go about our day to day lives?

I also wonder how much of intra-African travel that is not business trips is to visit family as opposed to "tourism" as such.

It may be that traveling to Africa as a member of an African family will result in a substantially different experience. In any event, if I get my Income Base Repayments for my main student loan approved, I hope to find that out this coming Christmas.


I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
