Namib Desert #2 and a video
Yesterdays commentators gave me the idea to show you our
Video "In der Namib Wüste" (In the Namib Desert).
It starts slow, like our car does, but after one minute you will see some action, on our way to Sossusvlei. The running boy is Andreas.
When I now think of this, sitting here in Germany on my desk, it is ...
But I just try to tell you what comes in my mind.
When you are there you are there. Things tend to be normal, or kind of, because you are experiencing that. We are fully in the moment, here and now.
Later on, this is so far away. So different.
Imaging 42°C (107°F) in the mid of the day, very little shade, no air condition in the car.
These moments are so special, they give me so much energy.
On the way back. 200 kilometers on gravel to the main road. For the night we just pitch our small tent somewhere. One of us sleeps in the car. And the places are great and quite. And nice and cool.
