We packed up slowly and only left the backpackers at 10:00. We filled up in Lüderitz and then drove to Aus and stopped at the General Dealer again. We deflated the tyres, bought airtime and tried to draw cash, but the ATM didn’t work.

We took the C13 to
Helmeringhausen and stopped for the self-proclaimed best Apple Tart in Namibia. The Monkeys shared an Apple Tart and a Bratwurst with Kartoffelsalat. The Apple Tart received good points, but we will have to wait until Solitaire for the final verdict.

After lunch we drove to Duwisib Castle and camped at the private camp site next door. Caro is the only one who went to do the tour. They didn’t have a guide and just gave her a piece of paper with some of the history. The castle was only inhabited for 5 years by the original owners.

We swam and worked a bit at the reception of the campsite before making spaghetti and mince for dinner.
