Up till now the only local/indigenous people we've met have been people in the service sector - hotels, campsites, food service etc. Today we got to see the Townships outside of the main centre of Swakopmund - might actually be better seen as the main town - with the CBD being a white (mainly tourist and administration oriented ) enclave.
The Guide was great - he lived in one of the first three sections and had trained for the job ...
... and the weathered layers are now at crazy angles, giving the landscape a very strange look. A tough, dry environment but we are surprised at how big the Kruisev must be when it is running - the gorge is very deep and surprisingly wide as we cross at the bottom.

The cold by nightfall is freezing, and nothing better than a pub to accommodate all this lively crowd. We were delightfully exhausted, and we had yet another delicious evening! ;)))
