So we’re skipping ahead.
There was no South Africa blogging. And no grand Mumbai blog. Maybe, when I’m old I’ll fill in the gaps from the huge collection of photos and video that butt up against my terabyte of internal and 2 terabytes of external storage. But probably not.
South Africa is beautiful. Cape Town is a jewel. The political story can be told in 30 minutes. Compared to the US (which would take much longer to explain) there’s a clarity to how it is that’s almost refreshing compared to the decadent self-destructive, suicidal even, machinations of the west. Enough on that.
The border town is Vioolsdrift, in the middle here
It was a breeze. No more than 30 minutes to clear South Africa and even less to enter Namibia. It’s a Carnet country, which always makes it easier.
Then to a lodge on the Orange River, an oasis where I installed a Namibian SIM card, cashed up, and am writing this as I make final plans for the route ahead.
Tomorrow I’m going fishing for something nasty called a tigerfish here.
