Alright, I admit it. I did agree with the description of Namibia’s adventure playground, Swakopmund, as “unimaginably dreary.”
I still do. Yet as I was leaving town, I drove along this street of, well, street art that lifted my spirits. From Gandhi’s “You must be the change you wish to see in the world,” to a rather wonky Bob Marley (or was it supposed to be Che Guevara?) Either way, these images showed me that hope, colour and inspiration can exist beneath the mist. Enjoy!
