Once upon a time, a long long time ago, when I was a mere 18 year old child, I took the trip of a lifetime to Africa.
I was one of a group of 16, African novices all. Each day was filled with sights, sounds, and scents which none of us had ever encountered before.
One of our stops was to visit Victoria Falls. We pulled into a parking lot on the Rhodesian side of the falls, which of course is now Zimbabwe.
There before us was a huge baobab tree.
None of us KNEW it was a baobab tree. All we knew was that we had never seen anything like it and were amazed at its gnarled huge trunk!
We sat there with our mouths agape wondering what in the world it was until some one of us, one with eagle eyes, spotted a small identifying sign at the base of the tree.
We leapt from the van and rushed over to read the sign.
This is what it said:
