Namibia became independent on 21 March 1990.


Your not Namibian by any chance are you :D


I am indeed. As well as a South African. Give me another couple of months and I'll be a Brit as well. I even attended the official Independence ceremony. Not really by choice but there you go.

Great RR. Nam's got a special place in my heart.
Getting lost during an adventure is a relative term. It all depends if you're enjoying it.

Thanks for the comment Mzee. I almost missed this great RR. It is the same route that I want to do in a year or two.
