China is gradually conquering Africa, but this conquest is humane: investments are being used. African resources are fundamentally important for the Middle Kingdom, for their sake the Chinese invest money in the Black Continent, develop infrastructure, establish economic ties, gradually turning Africa into their new colony.

Travel blogger Sergey Dolya, while traveling in Ethiopia, was struck by the contrast of the beautiful roads built by the Chinese here and the general poverty around. Today, Ethiopia is a racer's dream — there is not a soul on the track, the surface is beautiful. It is quite possible that it will be here that "Fast and Furious-22" will be filmed one day.

A strong wind sweeps the roads in the lowlands, trying to throw cars off the black roadbed. Ostriches, camels and even wild monkeys can be seen along the roads.
