Two Sides of Africa

It seems ironic that Damien Glez's cartoon image of a gold FIFA soccer cup
appeared in the shape of South Africa in 2010.
South Africa was the first African nation to host the final of the FIFA cup.
It was also the first time that the host nation was eliminated in the first round.
Glez is from Burkina Faso (until 1984 - Republic of Upper Volta) in West Africa.

Cartoon: africa (medium) by Medi Belortaja tagged leaves,leaf,africa,drying,poor,poverty,hunger,hungry
But Medi Belortaja - August 26 2011
produced this image of Africa -
symbolising poverty and hunger.
His view was from Tirana, Albania.

Le cartoon
However Glez did produce this cartoon as well.

fevered words
the hungry worlds
for a little while
