Windhoek

The capital city was our base for the trip, and we spent three night spread over two and a half weeks there. The downtown has a neat collection of Gibeon meteorites from a huge fall in the south of the country. Beyond just being generally in love with them, we were struck by how similar they all were in size. The area near Windhoek is a bit more wooded and grassy than the rest of the south of the country, though it was still very much a desert. We saw some baboons on the road a few times, which are nearly impossible to photograph. Our last night there, we had dinner at Joe's Beerhouse, the third most visited tourist site in the country (following Sossusvlei and the Etosha Pan wildlife park).
