Guinea is a West African territory of approximately 8 to10 million people that was a formal French colony until independence in 1958. Like most of Africa, it is rich in minerals even as its population subsists on approximately one US dollar a day. The natural resources of the territory include bauxite, gold, iron ore, uranium, diamonds, coffee, fish, hydropower and agricultural products. In fact, Guinea produces about half of the world’s bauxite, the mineral necessary for the production of aluminum.

Hello Achim,
An interesting and well taken image of the bark of a W. African tree trunk. The lighting and sharpness are excellent to highlight the horizontal lined pattern of the bark and the thorny projections. The lighter grey patches look like lichens. It would be interesting to know the species of tree.
Thanks and best wishes,
