Begging for water.. the road is 3 days of cycling without any habitation. Nothing, no farms, houses no water!

Its a collection of buildings that makes up a garage, petrol station, bakery, bar, lodge and campsite. After eating apple pie, the birds help me finish the last few crumbs

Deep in the Namib desert are the dunes. Following a dry river a road leads right into the centre

The dune peak behind is 250 meters above the base

Footsteps on the ridge of the dune. Looking down I could see the ridge line shift a few millimeters as the position of the dune moved slowly.

View forcthe top. Surrounding dunes are hundreds for meters high
