July 9: Currently in the hired car (for those who care, I rented us an awesome Toyota Fortuner 4x4 with less than 2,000 km on it... um, Score!) listening to a funky German rendition of "Go West"... so fun!
We left the lovely port town of Luderitz this morning and drove a short distance to the fascinating Kolmanskop (prev. Kolmannskuppe), Namibia's famous ghost town. After filling our stomachs with delicious cappucinos and good, quick ...

Succumbed to a power nap after that, lunchtime drinkies :-( Dinner and four of us as is the norm, didn't fancy the show so one in the Nest and then down to sample our Namibian red wine :-) Got stuff ready for tomorrow and watch some TV. Nothing special from country 59 really but we've been :-) ok if you like sand ...
