Spent a leisurely morning cleaning up, packing, and hanging out. Went and hiked the Sossusvlei Canyon. There's a canyon that is about 200 feet deep that is out in the middle of an otherwise perfectly flat desert. One end emerges from an underground tunnel, and the other gradually spreads out. The water isn't flowing right now and the hike involved wading and sometimes swimming through some awful smelling, bio-hazardous looking water.
The drive to Walvis Bay involved some of the most boring landscape I've ever seen. The only time I've ever seen anything so bleak and devoid of and detail was the Western Desert in Egypt. The road was a well maintained (or little traveled?) gravel road that ran perfectly straight for more than 100 km. The landscape around the road looked pretty much the same as the road, except for the lack of tire prints and an occasional 4 inch high weed.
When we got to Walvis Bay we stopped at KFC (of course) then headed for the campground... which no longer exists. After checking at a hotel and a guest house we found out about the existence of a backpackers and eventually found it. Cleaned up, hung out, and then headed to a decent pizza restaurant for diner.
