The Garden of Eden

I wouldn’t be surprised if the myths that the Garden of Eden were situated in the highlands of Ethiopia were found to be true. Imagine this landscape in a thousand years ago, before the age of men, when the plains were full of the animals of the Ark, and the river was an endless source […]
