Under a Baobab tree
Caribbean

This amazing Baobab tree is one of two mature trees growing in Barbados. With a girth of nearly 45 feet, it is thought to be about 250 years old. I confess that I spent over an hour Photoshopping all of the graffiti that had been carved into the bark over the years. This tree is magnificent and should be treated with more respect. I know that the carvings are permanent but I thought to do my part making sure they not get any more exposure to the public. The recently constructed office building seen here was aptly named "Baobab Tower". This tree is growing in the Warrens area but the other one located in Queens Park (Bridgetown) is even larger and may well be over a thousand years old!

More About The World

Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! Humans have iron in their blood, and their bodies are composed of two-thirds water, just like the planet they live on. The physical composition of the Earth, its people and everything on it contains an electro-magnetic field which is not yet fully understood. Theories and legends about the origin of Earth, people and life itself abound, however they are not commonly discussed. The bulk of earth's people spend their time immersed in daily activities, leaving the big questions for later. "Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How will we get there?" Many religions and philosophies have attempted to answer these questions over the years, but so far none has given an answer that everyone on the planet can accept. In contrast to all the disagreement, the similarities among people on earth are far, far greater than any differences. Welcome again to Earth! Enjoy your stay, and try to stay calm.
