Second visit but not the last
Namibia between 10 Oct 2007 and 28 Oct 2007
As our first trip had been with a small group from the UK travelling with CCAfrica, we had not realised that Brits are only 7% of the tourists, the great majority being German, tho we also met Italians and French. Everyone was excellent company and this was itself a significant part of the pleasure and success of the trip.
Driving entalied some long hot days but was not tiring compared with the M25, say. We helped one Damara family whose old car had died by taking them to the Uis township to find a man with a functioning battery and gave a lift to another lady going to visit her man in Reheboth hospital and, when I had to change a wheel, sure enough the next person along stopped to help. Again, nice parts of the experience.
One policeman at a roadblock tried to extort a small fine but waved us on when I produced pen and paper!
We would happily go back soon but the world is a big place, life is short and money is never enough. However, perhaps in a year or two....."
