Internet ability will be patchy or non existent for the next week or so. I will do my best but it is likely to be some days until I can post.
Travel broadens the mind so they say. It also brings you into close contact with the best and worst of human nature. We are frequently reminded of the need to be vigilant and stay safe. Most locals feel bad about the increase in tourist crime, is reputedly perpetrated by South Africans coming into Namibia, and will go out of their way to help you. It is often humbling the extent that people go to to provide assistance.
On a lighter note; a funny story from today. We went into a electronics store to purchase another portable storage drive. After looking about I decided to try the shop next door and we walked out a different door; one with those tall skinny security alarm stands... which duly went mental when I walked through. The security guard rushed over grabbed my handbag, rummaged through it, gave it back & motioned me through the stands. The alarms went off again. So she emptied my bag checked everything thoroughly and we had another go. Nope I set off the alarms again. So this time she took my bag & walked through with it herself... no problem. Got me to walk through without the bag… no problem. Gave me back my bag and I walked through - and promptly set the alarms off yet again. I felt like I was in the twilight zone.
We will be at Keetmanshoop for the next 3 days/nights shooting Quiver trees and cheetah.
