Ancient Baobab Tree in Mali
As one of the first volunteers to go to Mali in 1971, I was given a Peugeot ... a French made truck and a gas allowance! In addition to helping to build the regional poultry center in Sikasso, my job as a livestock extension agent, was to travel throughout the region teaching Malian farmers, how to raise broiler birds.
Here, I'm next to a giant Baobab tree in Mali.
Local folklore has it that after creation, each of the animals was given a tree to plant and the hyena planted the baobab tree upside-down!
