Winter in Namibia

I'm spending the wintermonth of August here in Swakopmund. Most days are sunny however, but Swakop has it's own microclimate and can be cold and misty or even rainy as it is today. Last week we went to Etosha N.P. and visited a farm owned by Anita's family.

The list of things to do around here is still long though so I won't get bored before I will restart my journey round Africa in September, first going doing down to South Africa, by then it's the beginning of spring, but probably still very cold and then upwards via Mozambique, Malawi and Tanzania and further on to Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda.
The bike has been serviced, some parts arrived via the post from Europe and in South Africa I just have to pick up a new front tire and it will be ready for the long way home. Hopefully it will do as well on the way up, with no faults, breaks or even flat tires and then I will need just one oil change and one back tire around Kenya to get me safely in Europe.
