If you think that being a bar is the only fascinating thing about this tree, you’re dead wrong!
This amazing tree is located in Limpopo, South Africa and it was transformed into a bar to keep the thirsty locals happy. But now more than 7000 tourists visit this place every year. The bar is inside a 155feet circumference baobab tree, with its own cellar and natural ventilation system. It takes about 40 people with their arms stretched to grasp the whole thing and the owner says one time he threw a party and managed to fit 54 people inside, although he doesn’t think he’ll ever do that again.
But the most impressing thing about this baobab is that, according to scientists, it’s about 6.000 years old, older than most of the pyramids in Egypt. It actually makes this tree-bar the oldest living organism on the planet! That’s just fascinating!

A ginormous example of Einstein's E=mc2.

Consider the considerable mass of the tree, plus or minus some water and local nutrients, all transformed from the energy of the sun.

Amazing.
