Personal highlights

  1. Namibia: leaving the dry and arid country after more than 2 weeks
  2. South Africa: utterly friendly customs officers, but no car insurance
  3. Nomansland: crossing the wide Orange River on a modern bridge
  4. Border Post: one of the fastest and easiest crossings in Africa
  5. Orange River: the first flowing river and green oasis I see in Namibia
