Photo by @MartinEdstrom | These magic Dragon's Blood Trees are time travelers. Most have stood here for hundreds of years. Some are close to a thousand years old. It's humbling to realize they've lived through several civilizations that have come and gone - slowly growing while we humans mill about with our wars and conflicts. Sitting under one today, you might share the same shade and resting space with seafarers from 500 years ago - when the world map looked radically different.
