More Trees in Congo
Here are some palm trees blowing in the wind early one morning as we walked along the street by the ocean in town. It is a wonderful place to walk, with clean, ocean air and a paved street and lots of people walking to work in the hotels and homes along the way.
These are some bushes/trees that grow everywhere there is swamp. They kind of take over. This is by a river that you can see in the bottom left of the picture.
This is from the same viewpoint, showing more of the river and the bank going down to the river. There are banana trees on the left, and the hill is terraced with peanuts, peppers, beesap bushes, and manioc trees. Can you see the tiny plants just coming up in even rows near the bottom-we think those are peanuts. If you look closely you can see some people in the far right corner, there to wash their dishes.
