    I love Baobab trees. I don't know if it was The Little Prince that inspired that love or my travels in Africa - Probably both.

    Baobab - the upside down tree. The Baobab tree is a strange looking tree that grows in low-lying areas in Africa and Australia. The Baobab is also called the upside-down tree because when bare of leaves, the spreading branches of the Baobab look like roots sticking up into the air, as if it had been planted upside-down. The "Tree of Life" at Animal Kingdom in Disneyworld is patterened after this tree.
