This stand of trees are one of the wonderful treasures I found in Bavianskloof in the Eastern Cape during my Fall Phototour in South Africa. These specific trees are in the region tof five to six hundred years old and seems to be of the species Ficus Capensis (The Cape Figtree). This stand is growing around several freshwater fountains. The farm where this stand of figtrees is located is called Sewefontein - litterally translatable to English as "Seven Fountains". Baviaanskloof is not only home to these wonderful trees, but also to other indigenous forest giants like Yellowwood trees (Podocarpus falcatus and Podocarpus Latifolius), White Stinkwood (Celtis Africana), Wild Alder (Nuxia Floribunda), Milkwood (Sideroxylon Inerme) and Red Alder (Cunonia Capensis). The man sitting down on the one end of the panorama is Patrick the caretaker and tourguide to this natural wonder. This panorama is part of a three-piece virtual tour I am busy working on at the time of publishing this.

这是一个概述Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.

The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.

Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.

In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.
