Africa is known all over as the poorest continent in the world because most of its countries are still under developed. To be honest, in my own country Uganda you find some people sleeping in dilapidated structures, on streets, under sewage pipes etc. with nothing to eat and proper clothes to wear. However like many other Africans who are living in Africa, before I travelled I had a different picture of Europe and I never imagined at any one time that there where people living under very poor conditions comparable to those in Africa. It was a shock to me to find beggars on European streets and other people with no proper sleeping places, no food and good clothes.
