Did you read the news story that the Bolivian president, Evo Morales gave the UN president (Ban Ki-moon) a cake for his birthday made with coca leaves? The Bolivian president was earlier a coca farmer, and is an advocate of coca for its use in medicines and teas. He even pulled out a bag of coca leaves and began chewing on them during a meeting of the UN Anti Drug group in Vienna in 2012. Coca leaves are used in the production of cocaine, with Bolivia being the world’s largest producer of the drug.
The Sahara is the world’s hottest desert, and after Antartica, is the world’s second largest desert. The name actually comes from the Arabic (plural) word for desert. It has sand dunes up to 180m high, and its highest point is over 3414m high. In summers, temperatures can rise to over 50 degrees. Today’s photo was taken near sunset in Morocco, in a town on the edge of the Sahara.
