Windhoek Saturday

This Saturday started like most. We went to the Bio-Markt at Stefanskirche.

We met friends and we did some shopping…

…and our guests from Norway discussed Namibian meat products. Perhaps do some imports?

From Bio-Markt we continued to Windhoek Show. Hanna and Alexander found a roller-coaster that looked nice…

…and proved to be so…

A quick flight over Window…

…and a teacup ride.

There was a Snake Park as well. Including this big varan and with a show where a young man from South Africa introduced us to…

…the Puff Adder. This snake is causing most snakebite fatalities of all snakes in Africa. 

But the snake that people are most afraid of is this. The Black Mamba is not black (except for inside its mouth) but it is truly scary. It is probably the most aggressive snake of all, known to attack humans without provocation. It often climbs trees…

It can be up to 4,5 meters tall, can attack at a speed of 20 km/h making it the fastest snake of all. It can lift the front third of its body and so can attack up to a meter away in an instant. One bite can contain poison that could kill 25 persons.

From this scary experience we went home to celebrate Alexander’s 11th birthday!

This intense Saturday ended at the Playhouse Theatre. The American Embassy had arranged a great evening, mixing a drumming school from College of the Arts, “Spokenword” poetry, great musicians, some serious drumming by…

…world artist Leon Mobley and jazz singing by Namibia’s own Erna Chimu.

Enjoy a taste of this magic night!
