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 a grove of banana trees, in the yard of a little wooden home along the road.

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.
