“My trip to Armenia has been a delight! Enjoying my time to the fullest, without worrying about the organization of the trip, a real luxury. Very grateful to Focus for giving me the opportunity to meet other like-minded travelers. Without hesitation I will come back to share your trips, hoping to discover new sensations! A thousand thanks for such an exquisite job.”

After the success of ‘Viajeras, intrépidas y aventureras’, Cristina Morató has returned to the bookstores with ‘Las reinas de África’, a work that narrates the life of the women who arrived in Africa during the 19th and 20th centuries, whose passion for the continent and spirit of exploration was often forgotten.
I don’t know but they certainly contributed to denounce slavery, the prevailing racism of the time and unfortunately current issues such as female genital mutilation to which many African women are subjected.
Many, some lost their lives in Africa, but others returned to their countries of origin, wrote magnificent travel books (Karen Blixen among them) and gave lectures about their adventures, among them the North American Delia Akeley, Osa Johnson, etc….
I think there is a lot of confusion on the subject, although an anthropologist could clarify it better than me. It is said that some remote tribes still practice cannibalism when in fact when a relative dies they keep a piece of his body as a ritual… and that does not mean that they have “eaten” it…

There were only two other women on board, and both left the ship in the Canary Islands. “On my first voyage, I didn’t know the coast, and the coast didn’t know me. We were terrified of each other.” When she arrived in Freetown, she felt self-conscious about the human and animal traffic in the streets, the confusion of the market, the noise.She stayed with a British commercial agent and, when she got over the first shock, she set off to explore the coast of the Gulf of Guinea as far as Luanda, in Angola, and into present-day Nigeria.Don’t missStudies about West Africa
AlamyShe traveled alone, with the help of native guides and porters. Her aim was to investigate the customs of the local peoples. She was aware of her shortcomings in ethnographic matters and therefore did not consider herself an anthropologist.Her references were Burton, the explorer, and the writings of Edward Burnett Tylor. He considered the animist beliefs of the Indians as a way of understanding the environment as an alternative to science and reason.Kingsley approached her scientific work from participatory observation, which required coexistence with the tribes she studied. She was one of the first ethnographers to carry out real fieldwork and a forerunner of cultural anthropology.Life in the bush provoked, among other episodes, a confrontation with a leopard that she hit with a water jug and a constant struggle against insects. “One of the worst things you can do in West Africa is to acknowledge the existence of an insect. If you see something that looks like a flying locust it is best not to pay the slightest attention to it; keep quiet and trust it will disappear. There is no chance of victory in hand-to-hand combat. “Mary Kingsley (1862-1900)
