Day 11 – afternoon / eveningDay 4 – Northern Experience Tour Hot sunny day – 40 Celsius Evening - 30 Celsius
What a life! A beautiful one for that matter! Since we had the rest of the afternoon at leisure, plus the fact that there was nothing around here for miles away, we spent our time by simply relaxing here at Felix Unite! But guess what! I couldn't have asked for anything better!
The views of the Orange River from our cabana were quite something. It was hard to believe that right across the river from where we stood was South Africa and that here, we were in Namibia!
While admiring the vistas, we were entertained by several canoeists going down the river's rapids, birds flying all over the place but mostly, by savoring our time spent here! Sighhhh!
The sun was hot, so hot that it dried my long hair within a matter of minutes. This is how hot it was! You didn’t need a hairdryer here….mind that they didn’t have any in the cabana to start with! Nature did it all for free! It was terrific!
I had gotten used to seeing these little geckos all over the place which by now, were considered my friends. However, as long as they stayed away from me or didn’t come in my cabana, I was fine! As for my spiders’ phobia, I was happy not having seen any so far! Hehehe!
Michel took a dip in the pool while I lounged in the shade and dozed off. This was paradise where I didn't think of anything else or about you guys back home! I was doing it the African way....slowly but surely....and I do believe was getting the hang of it!
A hearty dinner was prepared by our guides on a small propane stove and just like last evening, we ate outside. Can’t say that there were mosquitos around because I didn’t see any! Probably due to the fact that I had spayed myself from head to toe with insect repellent! Hehehe! But honestly, there wasn’t any!
Having stayed here at Felix Unite for two nights, tomorrow morning we’ll be leaving and heading further North. Can’t wait to see what the day promises me as my African journey continues through this land of endless horizons......through Namibia! Monique :-)
