The loneliest tree
SENEGAL, WEST AFRICA —
The road to Bandial stretches out north from the village of Brin some 20 kilometers, past a few villages where people pass on bikes or motos and sell mangoes by the side of the road.
When you round the "bend" and go into the final stretch that lasts for miles, you can see out and forever into the horizon. It feels like the end of the earth.
Cows and goats eat in the fields, which slowly become mangroves.
One tree stands sentry.
