I think Africa trumped this one

Writers understand Africa like no one else. Streams of brilliant authors, artists, poets and song writers, have taken inspiration from Africa for centuries and the love affair continues… despite what the world thinks of us.

An African Christmas tree

 
“You have to understand – there is a romance to Africa. You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slow lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.”
From the book, “Leaving Time” by Jodi Picoult
