Living in a baobab tree

Here are some pictures we found of how people have used the hollow spaces within a baobab tree as living spaces – there's a bar and another has even been fitted out as a toilet! One ancient hollow Baobab tree in Zimbabwe is so large that up to 40 people can shelter inside its trunk. Various Baobabs have been used as a shop, a prison, a house, a storage barn and a bus shelter. What do you think? A: Cool and cute B: I don't mind either way or C: not quite in keeping with the dignity of a beautiful tree? You tell us. Put either A, B or C and your comment in the comment box below!
