You've heard the drums, you've seen the colorful African items for sale and maybe even stopped and got some refreshments at the "Coolpost" but where are you?
Well you are in the Outpost which is located between the China and Germany pavilions in Epcot. It's believed that this was to be the location of an Africa pavilion that never materialized. Now it's a fun place to stop get an ice cream or a quick bite to eat and let the kids bang on the drums or have their face painted. And there are a number of tables with umbrellas where you can sit and rest your tired feet. For me, I love to look around at the many beautiful and authentic African items for sale. Also, there is always an artisan there demonstrating the skill and talent that goes into those incredible items.
So, come along as we walk through the very interesting part of the World Showcase.
