And then the last leg! A few hours and we were back in Windhoek where we started seven weeks ago. While we still had the cars, we dropped our own gear back at Londiningi Guesthouse and raced around town buying the last few things we wanted to take home. We hit the camping shops to buy some gear we know is not available at home - a braai grill and stand, and a small camp bread oven. Heavy to take home but we'll fit it in somehow!
We dropped the cars off at the car-hire place which took HOURS - one would think that we would be quite used to African time by now… an extra unpleasant cost was having to pay for the tyre that we wrote off, but then so did others in our group.
A final dinner out at Stellenbosch Restaurant was our last get-together for the whole trip. Tomorrow morning we will be the first to leave Namibia on our flight back to Joburg and then home to Sydney. It must be said that we are tired after the 7 weeks on the road, but it has been a fantastic experience and we'd turn around and do it all again given half a chance!
