Trees in Congo
Here is a baobab tree that has leaves.
And here is one that doesn't!
These are both along a road out of town.
This is an orange tree - but the oranges are not sweet like we think of oranges. One day I bought some because the woman selling them told me they were very delicious and sweet and we couldn't eat them - they tasted like lemons. The people here love them, and they are sold everywhere. Many times the vendors will peel them with a knife so they are easier to eat. They stack them in piles of at least 3 or four and that is how you usually buy them.
