Do I get the prize for closing the longest gap inbetween replies on a thread?

Joe's Beer House, Windhoek. http://www.joesbeerhouse.com/ (http://www.joesbeerhouse.com/)

I have never been there (only passed througth WINDHOEK) but when Worldrider was in SA, we struck up a protracted web-conversation and I helped him with maps and routes etc. While finding  a service centre for his Dakar, I came across this place and included it in my info for him.

As I am looking at this picture, wondering how the heck you can ever hunt it down in GE - it sort of swam into focus and memory. Now I will just HAVE to go grab 453ml or 906ml at the place..
(pint or two... gotta go metric)

There are skis on the wall. Is it near the Drakensberg?
and since there are also Voortrekker paraphernalia, is it near Estcourt/Weenen/Bergville?

Funny story - we walk into The Tug around 7pm on 25 Dec (yes wishful thinking) and ask whether they have a table for us. The hostess runs her finger along the reservation book and says:
"We can help you around... mmmm... lemme see... Ah, yes - on the 4th of January"

Gladys, please take a letter to Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Google Corp.

Dear Larry and Sergey,

Google Earth is great, but I would like to suggest an improvement. I would like to be able to zoom all the way into a bar and see the interior.

If you could also make it such that I could order on-line and then get the beer dispensed directly from the USB port on my PC that would also be great.

Kind Regards

Nope.  'Camp Africa' behind Louis Trichardt on your way to Hanglip through the plantations.  Can be reached by gravel road or a small rocky climb through the woods - a must visit in the Soutpansberg.

'Camp Africa' Google Earth image. I was guided there by a crazy local and his wife on a DL1000, so I don't know the exact location.  It should be one of the buildings at the top of the pic.  Louis Trichardt's border is at the bottom, the N1 in the right bottom corner.  PM me if you want more details.
