Usakos

Editorial: 29 July 2015

Some of you might know that we spend two weeks in Namibia this winter.  There were many highlights, most of them personal so I won’t bore you with the details, but there were a few surprises too.

Usakos is the last town you get before Swakopmund, and I remember it being a “vaal ou dorpie” with a bakery where my mom sometimes would stop for a treat.  Well, no more vaal dorpie – as you can see from the photograph, in the middle of the desert you find a town where well manicured plants beautify the streets, and more residents are following the example and making their own gardens just as interesting and beautiful.  Usakos is not only clean, with well looked after sidewalks and pothole free roads, she is beautiful!

If Usakos can do it, we can too.
