cosmopolit's Namibia Page
Never thought I might ever visit arid areas or desert but then Namibia happened to me. It became sort of an ongoing relationship since. Thanks to wonderful guides who know and love this country I learned such a lot about life under tough conditions. Ever since I appreciate the smallest living creatures or plants even more. Fascinating what forms of life the battle for survival brings about the planet. Let's be careful with it, it's too precious to waste.
Unforgettable sunset at Canon lodge near Fish River Canyon where time is irelevant. Fantastic location just nestled around the boulders in foreground, view from lookout on top.
Complete stillness, cool drink in hand spectacular view what more can one ask for?
Before wallpaper was introduced interior decorating has been a pretty tough job. Meantime historic events have been captured to be passed on to new generations in one of the largest collections of rock art in Namibia. Painting in top pic, they used lasting colours unlike us nowadays.
Engravings at Twyfelfontein bottom pic, rock could not be scratched with stones so they must have had very strong tools. There used to be a cave until it collapsed.
