Un punto fuerte de la aventura por el continente Africano: el desierto de Namibia.
Ocupando 50.000km2 siendo el desierto más antiguo del mundo.
One of the most interesting things of the African continent: the desert of Namib 50,000km2 being the oldest desert in the world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ɪɴsɪɢʜᴛғᴜʟ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Today I read a quote which reminded me of the key to personal growth: Don't be afraid of transformation. It's all a process and whatever you want to achieve will be a journey. Understand the beauty of change and get rid of your daily rigidity to make your life more interesting and unique.
Some Americans who live in my residence work for two months on different projects in Namibia. One group spends one month at Gobabeb. It's a research center located between the red sand and rocky desert at a dry river in the west of Namibia. It's very remote and quiet (except for the barking geckos). After all this exciting time in Windhoek it was such a good feeling to get away from all this noise, crime and endless opportunities to spend your time (ok compared to Berlin they are not endless but I hope you get what I mean - so many things to do and you forget about yourself). Here it was easier to focus on immediacy. I would have loved to stay at least for a week. But even these two days were refreshing :)
When did you go the last time to the desert?
Such a wonderful country, Namibia 🇳🇦🐘🦓
Das Sossusvlei ist eine von Sanddünen umschlossene beige Salz-Ton-Pfanne in der Namib, die nur in seltenen guten Regenjahren Wasser führt. Sossus bedeutet „blinder Fluss“ in der Sprache der Nama. „Blind“ bezieht sich darauf, dass der nach ergiebigen Regenfällen aus einer Gebirgsregion im Landesinneren kommende, in Richtung des Atlantiks fließende Fluss Tsauchab beim Sossusvlei in den Sanddünen der Namib-Küstenwüste endet bzw. versandet – etwa 50 km vom Meer entfernt.

Dry As a Bone. Unrelenting sun scorches the ground until it cracks, peels and hardens into patterns as far as the eye can see. The trees at the horizon line mark the edge of a gully that fills with water during the rare desert rains. Dead Vlei, Sossusvlei, Namibia.

One of my favourite places. Dune 45 in Namibia.
23°26′12.7″ S || Tropic of Capricorn.
A reebiebok was spotted getting in line with an invisible line.
Dating back centuries to BC period, the Tropic of Capricorn was named for when the peak or zenith of the Sun was in line with the constellation of Capricorn during the December or Winter Solstice. The “line” has since moved over the years, but the name remains.
In Namibia, the Tropic of Capricorn runs across the country, close to Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, and all through the Namib Desert. Here I am holding on to dear life on an invisible line in the Namib Desert.
This “line” is always moving, each year shifting by a small degree. Today, the sun is no longer in line with Capricorn, but with Sagittarius. But I like the idea that we get to walk on [literally-ish] a concept created centuries ago based on the most powerful source of energy for life.

Aquesta és una de les fotos en les quals pensava quan vaig decidir xafar el Namib i no em va decebre. Ací una de les dunes que es troben camí de la #Duna45
I meu favorit dels antílops: l'òrix del cap.
