A courier delivers messages, packages, and mail, and the other day also me! Couriers are distinguished from ordinary mail services by features such as speed, security, tracking, signature, specialization and individualization of express services, and swift delivery times, which are optional for most everyday mail services. As a premium service, couriers are usually more expensive than usual mail services, and their use is typically restricted to packages where one or more of these features are considered important enough to warrant the cost. I was one of the packages without warranty and "deliver and you get you money back" kind of deals. I was the cheapest way of traveling and me and my buddy reached our destination! Luckily I got the front seat on top of a package, and for a tall girl that means hugging the roof for a long few hours. The rest of the passengers where packed like sardines between mountains of packages in the back of the van. The trip consisted of 3 engine stops, 4 load checks, 5 fresh air breaks for the guys in the back of the van, and 1 sudden : Holy shit! Did you see that massive kudu antelope crossing? Oh and i forgot the six elbows i had to shoot out to keep the driver awake. It is like they say: A courier service is a premium service, its, fast, shaky,tight,with swift delivery times and it sure beats your average bus or taxi transport. I got courired and it was awesome!

The Baobab is called the Tree of Life with good reason. It is capable of providing shelter, food and water for the animal and human inhabitants of the African Savannah regions. The cork-like bark is fire resistant and is used for cloth and rope. The leaves are used for condiments and medicines. The fruit, called "monkey bread", is rich in vitamin C and is eaten. The tree is capable of storing hundreds of liters of water. At around 20 metres tall, the Baobab tree towers majestically over its neighbors on the African savannas. But today we are finding very few or in certain areas no young Baobab trees. And scientist are trying to figure out why! In areas like Kruger where they rotate which waterholes are filled up, scientist have noticed elephant demolishing the Baobob trees just to get to the inner water of the tree, they also wonder if the groundwater levels have dried out so much that it makes it impossible for trees like these to grow. But then again, what about the areas that do have a lot of ground water. This is the Holboom tree of Bushmanland, one of the oldest trees in Namibia. It was recently struck by lighting, and by that one more old witness is lost. These trees are the witnesses of everything that was and is, they have seen animals and humans evolve and disappear, and they have seen nature grow and shrink. lets remember to appreciate and protect, the growing wonders of the world while they are still here. Maybe these trees decided that they do not wish to witness any longer how we as man are destroying nature.? well at least what we can to is :Don't just witness them disappear!
