The Baobab in Messina ProefPlaas: I sat under a great baobab at dawn and shared with him stories of humanity since agriculture began. I spoke of our music, art, literature and the great discoveries and conflicts of modern times. He stood unmoved for a long while. Then laughed at me whispering, 'I've been watching your species for 2,500 years from this very spot. Tell me young one, with all your people rush to achieve, which of us will see the next millenium?' Unsure of the answer, I could only laugh as well. [More pictures from South Africa after the jump]
