Unbelievable, the last 30 km it is so windy constantly, blowing the sand over the road from left to right. You can see at some places like 200-300 m and that's it! It seems the wind was very strong also, stronger than normal.
Arrived in Lüderitz I went for a coffee at the waterfront, just enjoying the view over the little harbour. For the rest there is not that much to see so after the coffee I just started the way back. On the way back I made a short stop at Kolmanskuppe (the ghost city). A city partly covered with sand because of the windy place it is.
20 km before the Desert Horse Inn lodge, I made a stop to watch the wild horses coming for a drink at the Garub waterhole
When I got back at the lodge I got the good news that my wheel was repaired and on the way back, perfect!
For the sunset Piet offered me the possibility to drive to one of the chalets and watch the sunset from the terrace of a chalet which was not in use. Carlos went with me and we made some wonderful pictures and had a glass of red wine on the good life!
To finish the day I was gonna have dinner with Carlos, Piet and Christine (Piet's wife). After our nightcap Piet offered me a new helmet :-).
This morning I woke up at 5.45 to go for a hike with sunrise. First I had to drive for 5 km to the "old car" and from there I could start a hike of 12.7 km. At 6.15 I was ready to start the hiking
After the shower a little nap and testing the wheel. Everything seems to be ok!
Now some more relaxing to recover!
