|Out of Windhoek|
|My first glimpses of SA|
Negotiating the fare proved difficult (as I was going to learn the following days anyway). So I agreed to the fare too. Arriving in Long Street which is the busiest and best street in town, I stepped out of the taxi and found the backpackers door open (which is usually closed). The backpacker didn't have that laid-back feeling of Chameleons in Windhoek. It conveyed a feeling of many nationalities partying here for decades (17 years). It was the first backpackers in Long Street. I spent my first afternoon booking different a a wine tour, shark diving and a peninsula day tour. Then I started drinking again with the cool people working and staying there. I think it's one of the best backpackers in town.

On sunday I had planned my shark dive. So when I woke up I went for breakfast to Pickwick's across the street. Unfortunately, when I came back to prepare, Chris told me the dive was canceled due to the weather. She was drinking a tequila at that time (around 9am) and I asked her how she could. She told me it was her day off. She then kind of asked me if I wanted a beer which I kindly declined. But then she got me with asking something like “If I get a beer out of the fridge, open it and put it in front of you, will you drink it ?”. I couldn't let an open beer stand on the bar, could I ? So I said yes, and the day really started and went on with a few rounds of shots !! Fortunately the bar/reception/travel desk closes between 1 and 4pm on sundays. So we went for a stroll to the waterfront with Vanessa, a girl from the backpackers. We came back at 7 and started drinking again...
