Tree of Life, Bahrain

Well another week of posting and I'm glad to start off with a card from the Kingdom of Bahrain. It shows the tree of life which is the oldest solitary  tree. It is a mesquite tree 400 years old and 32 feet high.  It stands lonely in the heart of the dessert the local inhabitants believe that it marks the location of the Garden of Eden.

Thanks very much Mr. Saleh for quite a remarkable postcard!
