I'm so glad you found me because I need your help.

My name is Anansi.

I was born in Africa a long, long, very long time ago. People have been telling stories about me for centuries. Considering how old I am, I look pretty good for my age, don't you think?

You may have noticed that I'm a spider. A very clever spider, if I do say so myself! Usually I want to get something for nothing — unfortunately for me it almost never works out that way. But I keep trying!

I love exploring Africa. There is so much to see and do. It's a continent that has an incredible history full of amazing places, civilizations and cultures.

The only problem is, I'm a, um...little spider, so I need help getting around... That's where you come in. You'd think it would be easy for a spider to get around on the World Wide Web, but I can't find a computer my size.

So let's explore Africa together!
