Are people gullible, misinformed or plain stupid?

How do you picture Africa, and South Africa in particular?

I have heard the most wonderful descriptions of what some people have been told, taught or assumed Africa is like. I suppose a lot of it stems from what people read or see in movies.

I was asked some time ago if I knew a particular person in Nairobi. I just about fell off my chair thinking how ignorant this person was for thinking I would probably know someone who lives some Protected content away in an entirely different country!

I have heard stories of friends who have told people in "western" countries the most laughable stories of how we live, and the worst is that a lot of people believed it!

Which begs the question -- what have you heard about South Africa or how do you picture it?

I am sure we will hear some interesting tales!!
