The Hugging Tree



We have a new site www.g-lish.org where you can read all articles from This is Ghana in a much more organised fashion. Read The Hugging Tree there.


That's what I call it anyway--that one at the top. I noticed it while watching the football. There are some amazing Boabab trees in this area. In fact, one of them is considered a God which means I'm not allowed to photograph it. Fair enough. There was a goat nailed to it last week--a sacrifice. It is huge and old and you just want to make a house in the branches and go to sleep--if it weren't for the goat...and mosquitoes... Fortunately, many of its brothers and sisters are just as huge and awesome. Virtually every second tree is a Boabab and they're hanging about every fifty metres or so, everywhere...
