"The baobab was among the first trees to appear on the land. Next came the slender, graceful palm tree. When the baobab saw the palm tree, it cried out that it wanted to be taller. Then the beautiful flame tree appeared with its red flower and the baobab was envious for flower blossoms. When the baobab saw the magnificent fig tree, it prayed for fruit as well. The gods became angry with the tree and pulled it up by its roots, then replanted it upside down to keep it quiet."

Me encantan esas historias. Debería haber un libro en el que se recogieran los cuentos más raros o divertidos o evocadores que se han inventado para explicar el mundo. Igual ya lo hay. ¿Sabes si lo hay?

La gente ya no inventa nada.

Por eso me gusta este blog. No sé si es lo que pretendes, pero es un sitio lleno de cuentos, lleno de inventos extraños. Y de otra manera de verlo todo.
