Northeast Day 7 – Rundu to Ovisume

Day 7 on our trip to the north-east was just a travel day. We were going from Rundu to the farm Ovisume southeast of Grootfontein. I went up early and took a walk down to the Kavango River.


Mornings are almost always a good time of the day for a walk…

…but I was not alone. These men were fetching water from the river.Rundu_Ovisume03

After breakfast and packing we went into the market place in Rundu. Lots of handmade tools…Rundu_Ovisume04

Ovisume is a very nice place to be. Looking south and you can see the “southern Cross” in the sky…
