Curieuse Island - Seychelles
世界

The islands of Curieuse and Praslin are home to the famous Coco-de-Mer, an endangered and protected type of palm tree (lodoicea maldivica) that grows only on these two islands; everywhere else in the Seychelles these palms have become extinct. The Coco-de-mer palm bears a fruit that resembles a double coconut, weighing up to 50 pounds, and it contains the largest seeds in the plant kingdom! In the late 1700’s the nuts were thought to have curative and aphrodisiac properties, probably because the nuts have the amazing resemblance to the female pelvic region; it is also called the “love nut” for its suggestive shape.

Curieuse Island is a small island (approximately 3 sq. miles) belonging to the Seychelles, and is located about 2½ mile off the north coast of Praslin. The Seychelles is an island nation located about 1,400 miles off the coast of East Africa (parallel to Tanzania).

More About 世界

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.
