Africa and its mysteries. Africa is perhaps the poorest of continents. However, as a pass of magic, Africa is the most exciting and fascinating continent. The magic and the attraction of the unknown transform Africa, in our minds, into the most fantastic continents. That's what we tell in this book. First, with Journey to the West Coast, we show some data of the countries of the African atlantic coast. In the second story we penetrate the African interior in search of objects for initiation of African rituals, the candomble, or voodoo. I'm sure these two stories will shape what we think of Africa. The unknown, the mystery.

About Prof Altair Maia
Altair Maia is a Brazilian economist, specializing in foreign trade and in love with Africa and its stories. The first trip to Africa was in 2002 and, from then, makes two or three trips a year, to the black continent. The closer look at the customs, habits and traditions runs parallel to economic analysis and relations with the rest of the world. A new model of relationship is necessary so that Africa skirt of backwardness and stagnation in which it is. And this is possible. Always in search of the "cause and effect" relations, the stories will unfold in a timeline between the past and the present, trying to open the curtains of the future.
