It's like I'm walking through Germany, guys, what do you think of a woman's house behind me? This important commercial building was also later. a school and hostel for sailors, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, obviously had a violent colonial past, but today the
townhas a completely different character, they still speak a little German here, but actually Namibia It's foreign, especially with this weather and all the beautiful buildings and us. I saved the best for less because this is the lighthouse, add the oldest and most beautiful lighthouse in all of Namibia. We also visited the vibrant and atmospheric Swakopman Beach.
Thanks, so we're just eating our sandwiches and having a little picnic in the same place. city here in swagamun next to the playground and now it is all for families and children. It's a very welcoming town, but it used to be a place where they hunted whales a lot, so this is right next to the playground and it's pretty scary, thank goodness it's not. Don't do that anymore yes, this is a place of great contrasts, unique and truly the highlight of Namibia. I never wanted to see you cry. Let me know that was the reason it ended.
You live a life. I needed what you gave me. You're all a living dream I don't know, you're not a hater, did you feel it even though we were going down and all I know is sweet After a beautiful sunny day under the moon, it was time to find a campsite and we found a beautiful one. With the car there, we will pitch the tents on the roof and have our own private bathroom and toilet building. They do it a lot in Namibia and South Africa too. We love that tomorrow is the time to see more of this beauty.
Coast they call the Skeleton Coast, we will visit the National Aquarium, kind of like the marine life of Namibia and we will find some seals along the coast in Cape Cross, so we will do that tomorrow and now it's time to relax X Because I am tired, O , although we don't. We don't even need that much of a walk down, it's just not all we need, like everything we live and breathe, won't they just stay here and we'll set up the tents on the roof every night in five minutes? How wonderful is that, good morning guys, it's still early and we have a lot to do today, the first thing we do is visit the national marine aquarium, a species of Namibian marine life, everything you can see off the coast here in The deep blue ocean is in here for us to see, rather than drink. diving there is much easier, so let's explore the marine life of Namibia.
The National Aquarium is highly recommended, especially if you bring children. We actually didn't expect there to be so much to see and we even managed to learn a few things, thank you, thank you. There is also a lot to see outside, near the actual ocean. The National Aquarium is not very big. You can spend half an hour and an hour there, but I must say it's really worth it because you can see. all the fish that live along the coast here in Namibia and also the price is very reasonable because we pay about 30 Namibian dollars for adults, which is about two US dollars, and the yen we only pay one Namibian dollar, which is six cents, so let's sail.
We headed down the coast again, the skeleton coast to the north and started here at the dock in Swagman. The foreigner continues to surprise us at the edge of each city, we completely leave civilization and again into an endless no man's land, thank you, we are driving. that beautiful coast in Namibia and it is called the Skeleton Coast, what I haven't told you yet is where the name comes from and it has a lot to do with all the bones and skeletons that washed up on the shores here of animals like seals and whales. which were hunted here but also from humans because there have been many shipwrecks in the last few centuries here, which has to do with the currents and the rough sea behind me.
The best example you can find is the ship called xyla that is behind me there. It has that spooky vibe and it's from 2008 so it wasn't that long ago, just 15 years and that's why it's so beautifully preserved that you can see it from the shore and it's about 14 kilometers south of Hentis Bay. Namibian fishermen sold it to an Indian company it was supposed to be towed from Walthus Bay to Mumbai but as you can see it didn't get very far, the next stop will be just as special because some completely different sites appear on the coast there, foreigners, foreigners, so guys.
We drove a little further north and ended up in Cape Cross, a little bit north of Henties Bay, and it's famous for this guy here and thousands of his friends, and when you enter the park through here, the conservation area, and the you smell there. There are thousands of them and together the smell of urine is really disgusting, so I'm going to walk around here a little to see these guys and then I'll quickly get back to the car because I'm not going to take this for long, but is it worth it? Oh yes, this show.
This takes place on the water, it's something you don't see every day, so guys, I'm only here because the stench is so bad that Susan Yens decided to stay in the car. I'm here, I've never seen anything like it. There are a lot of seals in my life and it sounds a little like there are thousands of chewies around me. I don't know if you're Star Wars fans, but you sound like I know what you mean by Chewie, so we continue driving through a landscape. from another world again where you find almost nothing on the way in Tiny Town with the strange name of ouis, we found a wonderful oasis for our next stay.
