    'How to write about Africa'

    by Binyavanga Wainaina

    some tips: sunsets and starvation are good

    Always use the word 'Africa' or 'Darkness' or 'Safari' in your title. Subtitles may include the words 'Zanzibar', 'Masai' 'Zulu', 'Zambezi', 'Congo', 'Nile', 'Big', 'Sky', 'Shadow' 'Drum', 'Sun' or 'Bygone'. Also useful are words such a 'Guerrillas', 'Timeless', 'Primordial' and 'Tribal'. Note that 'People' means Africans who are not black, while 'The People' means black Africans

    Here's an infinitely more important article on Mozambique (the article I should have pitched but didn't). AIDS in Mozambique

    Mozambique's health ministry spent $50 million to fight AIDS. The United States dropped $27 million last year and will donate $48 million more in 2005. From the passenger seat of a pickup truck bumping along a teeth-grinding road in one of the most infected parts of the country, Aurelio Gomes has just one question: Where is the money?

    South Africa to Censor American TV

    ...Trikamjee responded to complaints regarding the Americanisation of society as a result of American TV programmes being broadcast. He referred to young people who, as a result, begin to copy the American culture rather than appreciating their own.

    Trikamjee referred to "American junk", but said one of the dilemmas was that the American programmes attract the most viewers and generate the most revenue....

    HARARE ZIMBABWE DISCOUNT HOTELS!

    Hotels in Harare, Zimbabwe can be quite expensive, especially during the peak season. Although hotels near the center at Harare, Zimbabwe obviously have their attraction, they might be fully booked earlier on and slightly more pricey. You may be able to find a better rate if you book ahead or if you are willing to be a short walk from the main attractions.

    Hmm, do you suspect there's a catch?

    Thanks for posting the link to Mozambique News under What's New.
    I found that the links on this site open all sorts of new windows to African news sites. I finally rested on a site http://allafrica.com/mozambique/newswire/ that had articles related to you guys and the work Shelby was involved with.
