African Baobab (Imbondeiro ou Calabaceira)

This is like the King of all trees in Africa, the Baobab, here in my country old people tell so many stories about it, though we dont believe them we never say no to listening...amazing tales of witchcraft and so...these trees can get very very tall and scary so its more than comprehensible that people might feel akward around them. I'll tell you something funny, one of the popular myths connected to this tree is that you can make boys "pipis" grow bigger if they knock on the tree with "them" :D :D :D
I just like to take pictures of it for its greateness in size and i also love the juice and ice cream made from the fruit that grows in it, we call it Múcua.
So next time you come to Africa ask for a Baobab fruit juice, they are good and have many vitamins.
