Breakfast at Thule’s

Rain. Rain in Namibia! I didn’t know there was such a thing!

Namibia is one of the least populated and dryist countries in the world. I’m in Windhoek. One of the two largest cities in Namibia. There are only 2.5 million people in the entire country. There are 11 million people in New York City alone!

Anyway, back to breakfast. This place, Hotel Thule…

is pretty much perfect.

It can only be described as completely relaxing. I could live here, between hikes. Ha. I’d be bored silly probably, but it’s a nice thought.

We have had an amazing time with our Namibian family.

Last evening we all had dinner at a restaurant call Stellenbosch. It was one of those outside/inside places. The open courtyard behind our table allowed a light rain to fall all evening. It was just delightful.

I had a chicken and peppadew pizza. They mostly had steak. Funny. The first time I came to Africa, I was surprised to learn that they had beef cattle here! I guess I figured we would all be eating antelope and crocodile!

These mostly cousins, with an aunt and uncle thrown in, are such down to earth people. They were mostly raised on a cattle farm, about 150 kilometers to the east of Windhoek. Near the border of Botswana.

We spent 5 days on their farm in 2017. It was real Africa out there. We had to pass through 7 gates to reach the farmhouse. There were warthogs scurrying around all day! Plus all kinds of cool bugs and birds. I will sometime do a post on bugs. You have NO IDEA.

Breakfast was great. Eggs on toast. They have toast here, too. 🙂
