Namibia 2015

After a quick stay at the airport in Frankfurt and viewing the National Soccer Team airplane (Superflieger Fanhansa), my wife, Angela, and I took an empty airplane to Windhoek (Windy Corner) in Namibia - our first time on the African contentinent.

We were invited to stay in the home of our good friends, Kerstin and Martin. How could we refuse to stay in such a beautiful place?

Not much grass, but there are wonderful ways to resolve that problem.

There’s not much rain here, as you can see from the dust on the road.

Acacia trees are everywhere.

The Acacia pod is odd.

But the wildlife is different from that in Europe. These giraffes were enjoying breakfast on the hillside.
