Day 343 Baobab Tree and Me

Finally a photo with me in it, courtesy of my friend, Kimmie.  As you can see, I discovered the wonders of wearing a Buff head covering. I now own 5 of them and love them. It kept the hair in control when driving and semi less dusty. The ones that I have offer sun protection also. I have two that are wool for warmth and one that is lined with polar fleece. The Baobab Trees are very easily recognized with their thick trunks and unusual shape. They are very old and threatened with extinction right now. In drought conditions, the elephants tear them to pieces looking for moisture. They leaf out when the rains come in January and even when the branches are bare have these pretty white flowers that smell horrible. Look closely at the first shot and you can see those flowers. We saw trees that have holes all the way through from the elephants tearing them apart. Somewhere in my files I have some shots of an elephant with its head inside a tree.

    Nice to see a shot of you to prove you were really there!!!!
    Interesting tree- hard to believe they would get torn to shreds.

    How did you get the shot of Mother Teresa?

    Wish I was as well thought of as Mother Teresa. You know how much I hate to be in photos!
