More Trees in Cogo
I don't know what kind of tree this is, but there are a lot of them, and they are very pretty.
Mango tree across from our house. It is mango season, so people get long sticks and poke them down.....
or, climb in the tree to get them, like these little children!There is also an electrical line going through the tree, which makes us very nervous about children being up there.
Coconut tree in a member's yard. It is also pineapple season, and there are thousands of pineapples being sold along the streets - but they come from a little piece of Angola, called Cabinda, which is just down the road a few miles from us. We pay an average of 2,500 cfa for a good sized pineapple, which is about $5.00 USD.
This elder didn't get up too far, did he!
This is the man who owns the tree, and he wanted us to take this picture quickly, because he wasn't going up much farther - he waits for them to fall down, to get them.
