Day 17 - 29 April

We had breakfast in Okahandja at a coffee shop, and were quite disappointed when we realised that Piet se Biltongplek will be closed because it was Sunday! We have sort of lost track of time somewhere along the way. Luckily the waitress at the coffee shop told us of the Kiosk just up the Highway. Without any further ado we turned out of town, and went hunting for billies. We spent the best part of an hour there, placing orders, and having them vacuum packed. O ja, and we were allowed a tasting as well!! Needless to say we bought quite a bit of billies. The rest of the day was spent with family in Windhoek, where we also spent the night.

Day 18 - 30 April

We are on our way home now. As we left Windhoek this realisation sunk in. No more sudden impulsive detours, no more new adventures, just this long boring B1 highway home. In Mariental we stopped at the Spar and bought some of the nice lamb, that went up from R48/kg to R52/kg, must be the drought. Round about Grunau we encountered very strong westerly winds over the plains, and it became quite a job to keep the Hilux on the road. We made Noordoewer at about 4 pm and I was tired, and we decided not to even attempt to cross the border. We booked in to the Noordoewer gastehuis, grabbed a Wimpy burger for dinner and by 8:30 we were in bed sleeping. Leaving the tropics

We passed him a few times.
