A car pulled to the sole gas station and two guys exited. The first lit his cigarette and headed to the general store, the other lit his and started refueling the car. This was Solitaire, Namibia.
The stop, a good distance from Windhoek, the capital city, and the coastal destinations of Swakopmund or the red sand dunes of Sossusvlei serves as the overland rest stop. If you traveled through Namibia, odds are better than good, you stopped in Solitaire.
After a refueling of myself with lunch, I decided to take my camera and shoot a few images of the barren location. Places like Solitaire are truly what make Namibia, well Namibia.
Then after the fuel, the supplies, and a few images we climbed back in the bus… more of Namibia, an Africa essential awaited.
stay adventurous, Craig
