Who Wants A Num-Num Starchy?

9:48am- Driving 4 hours from Windhoek to Soussosvlei on gravel highway, hit brakes so as to catch better sight of baboon family crossing road. Car, as if on field of ball bearings, skids wildly before falling into ditch. Again, pride of lions is there to finish things off.

8:12pm- Check into beautiful (and highly recommended) Kulala Desert Lodge. Climb ladder on back of our thached hut to reach sleeping/star-gazing deck. Get splinter in hand. Unable to remove it with tweezers, blood poisoning soon sets in.

9:09pm- Dine in main area with other guests staying at lodge. Witness tour guide treating his clients like absolute babies. Immediately infantilized, but having not paid for his services, am left to fend for self in isolated desert to ill-fated results.

Other than that, pretty good day.
