      Thanks Ruby, thanks to technology - we that have the know can make they who don't know know- because it is important. The pictures are just a glimpse of what Mother Nature blessed Africa with. It is far from what some may have been taught. I have many more of these beautiful places to unveil.

      Thanks for your wonderful encouragement. Thanks Ma'am. Be blessed
