Photographer's Note

Our tour had a reservation to Planet Baobah resort, one of the most amazing places to stay in southern Africa, unfortunately our reservation was cancelled and our group couldn't visit the place, what cause a turmoil in the group of tourists. To put the nerves in a lower level the guide stoped at entrance of the road to that resort and we were able to take some photos. I will post another two after this one.
Saint Exuperry wrote the Little Prince and curiously there is a link between he, the baobab and Brazil. During the big war he was working like a messenger in Natal, Brazil, when he knew an African baobab that exist there, he became impressed by the tree and put it in the history he was writing about a little prince lost in an asteroid.


Nosso tour tinha uma reserva para o Planet Baobab resort, um dos lugares mais afamados do sul africano. Infelizmente a reserva não pode se manter e não podemos nos hospedar lá. Houve uma grande revolta no tour e o guia, para tentar manter a nossa calma, parou no acesso ao resort para que pudéssemos tirar algumas fotos. Depois vou postar mais duas fotos do mesmo local.
Há um elo entre Saint Exuperry, o criador do Pequeno Príncipe, os baobás e o Brasil. Ele era aviador mensageio durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial e estava em Natal quando conheceu um baobá africano que lá existe, ficou tão impressionado com a árvore que a colocou no seu livro sobre o menino e seu asteroide.
