Swakopmund and After
On the last leg of our free, mulit-stage hike to Swakopmund, we shared the back seat with a shy dog.
I imagine this is what the new Albert Lea courts appear. I was involved with coaching tennis for eight years and they get new courts after I leave for Africa. Not nice.
Oh, but we read these mysteries while interlacing impromptu sarcasm. Apparently Wilford and Bugs have some serious issues, which I feel are not appropriate to discuss in this public forum.
Amy toasting her fish and chips meal. She proceeded to go on a rampage, knocking everyone out with the frying pan.
The breakfast of champions!
It's soothing to watch the waves crash against the rocks.
Ok. If you're from the midwest, look closely at this picture and see why it's included. Hint: why are these tires sold in Namibia?!
In Amy's defence, our hike was incredibly hot. Dylan & Sandra were sitting over a geothermal vent, literally. Liquid hot magma was about to erupt! If Yellowstone National Park or Iceland are missing a vent, we found it! The chocolate bar I brought along was liquid well before we got to W'hoek
Brock had this great idea of doing a 100 hole minigolf marathon. The only takers: Brock, Matt, Amy, Mariel and me. It was a blast! We played 100 holes for N$10! That works out to ten Nambian cents per hole, or about two pennies a hole in US dollars (after rounding up).
Guess who just got a hole-in-one? Mariel doing her hole-in-one dance.
Taz and Beth's boyfriend's dog in Mariental play the introduction dance. Taz won.
Patrick cutting up those pungent white onions, thereby taking one for the team. Eating one small piece will make you cry.
Megan and Sandra putting the finishing touches on the "toasties." They are bread, cheese, onion, tomato and whatever spices you want to put on them. Bake them in an oven until the bread is toasted. Yummy!
Waiting at the Gibeon hike point in the middle of a dust storm. I got a free hike out of it because I looked pitiful enough.
Don't those names just make you laugh?
With the power and water off in Gibeon, I have three new visitors for a while. Taz acts just like a human sometimes.
This is what we volunteers do a lot of the time ... read.
Vegetable pasta with a peanut sauce. In place of lemon juice, we used Oros Orange (unsweetened). Mix with peanut butter and cayenne pepper and it doesn't taste bad.
