i really, really love living on the African continent - when engaging with the wild spaces - simple common sense is the only thing keeping you safe. there are no signs constantly telling you be careful of the cliff edge. no handrails preventing you from falling over the edge. amazingly when some foreigners come here - because of the lack of signage constantly warning them - they think its somehow safe to go close to the edge of cliffs or do really dangerous silly things.
in Africa if one lacks simple common sense - it can be very dangerous to your health - so if your planning a visit. just because someone doesn't tell you to "mind the gap" . doesn't mean there is no gap. here nobody really tells you the obvious, which is how i like it.
