The Eighth Continent

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

I’ll try to tell in five images the story of the millions of fascinating men and women of Madagascar and of the thousands of living species found nowhere else on Earth. Let’s start our journey on Baobab Alley, an iconic landmark of the country. Baobab trees can live up to a few thousand years and hold an important place in local customs and beliefs. Six of the world’s eight species of baobabs can only be found in Madagascar.
