Little Africa in Bangkok

I found Little Africa in Pratunam yesterday with my friends. It was very interesting to see salons, boutiques, cafes and restaurants catering to Africans.

As a Filipino, I know very little about this continent. We are never educated of the history and the culture of people from this ancient land.

I am aware that many Thais do not like black people that much. I know that people with dark skin are considered bad and scarey. I do not know why. It is very sad. Actually, I have never seen or met any teacher here of African descent.

I will probably visit this place again alone.
