Hi isabeljflores,
I have created a Mission for East Africa and I cordially invite you to add you beautiful photos to this new mission.

Fun fact! The trunk of the baobab tree can grow so huge that one tree in South Africa, known as 'Big Baobab', has a circumference of 47 meters and even a bar for 60 people inside the trunk! Baobabs grow in arid regions and store massive amounts of water in their stems to cope with seasonal droughts.
