Day 135: Saturday 19 March 2011. African Nest Guest House, Windhoek. S22 33.229 E017 05.703  Distance driven 233 km
I went looking for the Dinosaur's footprints before I left the campsite this morning.  i must say you need a good imagination!
The drive of about 100 km to the tar road for Okahandja and Windhoek was a beautiful drive on a narrow sand road across grassland with mountains in the background.  i saw lots of buck, warthogs, baboons, an ostrich and many tortoises on the road as well as a family of about 20 meerkats.  There was one long section of about 25 km across a private game park.  There was evidence of lots of rain and flooding but in general it was a smooth fast run.
I had a look at the back-packer's camps in Windhoek but wasn't attracted, then the Roof of Africa Hotel (nice but expensive) and ended up next door at a small guest house where they agreed to do my laundry as well!
I'm here to wait for Jenny to arrive at the airport tomorrow afternoon.
