Palm Trees are my favorite kind of tree and when I think of a palm tree I see sunny beaches and long to go on vacation. Or during a hurricane I admire their strength when they resist the forces of the wind making them look indestructible.
Fortunately I did not see many of them. Most of them are well and alive, decorating Egypt’s sandy landscape.
They can be found in Temples, growing out of, and among ancient stones
Points of interest –
- 2,500 different types of palm trees growing throughout the world?
- they are an important religious symbol – think of Palm Sunday
- they give us coconut nuts, dates, betel nuts, and acai fruit
- and palm wine called KALLU – an alcoholic spirit made in regions of Asia and Africa
More from Egypt soon
