For those who loved The Little Prince, with apologies to Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Here is a view of my office from the outside, including the giant baobab tree around which the building is constructed:

baobab

It contrasts pretty sharply with the skinny little palm trees in the middle of the frame, which bear huge clusters of red fruit that the mynah birds love to eat. This is why every once in a while one of them will wander in through an open window and make off with something from my desk. It's just the neighborhood bar to them, after all.
