Sojourn in Swakopmund

Sundays, in the parts of Southern Africa I have visited, are for the most part void of activity. For those of us that are from Asia (or have been living in Asia) might find this a bit strange. Most commercial establishments are closed, and those that open only do for a few hours a day.

I wanted to get my hair cut yesterday, but the shops had already closed by 14:00……on a Saturday.

I have a video from my sky dive on Friday. Will try to upload a portion but I think it will be too large….my facial skin jiggles, and I can see what I will look like when my hair falls out down the line.

Africa is a very interesting place and it is too bad that I waited so long to come over here. i have seen some other travelers pictures of places in Tanzania , Kenya, Malawi, that all look really interesting too.

Coming up we will be stopping at the giant sand dunes on the southern coast of Namibia. From there we will make our way via Orange River (South Africa/Namibia border) to Cederberg wine area finally getting into Cape Town on Friday. My cell phone number is now working (when in range) and I will attempt to check in via phone when I hit South Africa.

Many thanks to all of you that have been looking in. Please keep wandering by when you have the chance and thanks for all the great comments.
