My notes on Namibia: Is there anything there?

The name of Namibia comes from a local language and is translated as “the place where there is nothing”. Well, after I have driven more than 3600 km in ten days across the country, I can’t totally agree with the country's ancestors, although their vision might have depended on what they compared things to.

Geographically speaking, Namibia is a desert zone with some parts that are semi-deserts. I am not an expert but my school knowledge tells me that apart from deserts many parts of Namibia look like steppe, and some like savanna. These means that there is a lot of grass - really, endless seas of yellowish grass, and quite a lot of bushes and trees. In some parts the vegetation is really green and inviting. 

I visited Namibia in July, in the middle of African winter. It is obvious that in other seasons the landscape looks different; but I am sure that this land is not bare looking at any time of the year.

Just look at the photographs* and see yourself how beautiful the flora of Namibia is!

About Author

Professionally speaking, by now I have... over 15 years of teaching English - to kids and adults, one-to-one and in groups, over 60 textbooks and supplementary materials for teaching and learning English - written and published, over 400 hours of teacher training sessions in 7 countries, over 100 blog posts for parents who help their children learn a foreign language. My lifestyle (in the past 6 years I've lived in 4 countries for at least one year) has led me into developing a new dimension for my teaching career: a trainer for parents [and teachers] who help kids learn a foreign language between classes. Visit my blog http://www.papalingua.com/ and see how easy and exciting it is to be a language partner to your kid, and a teaching partner to your kid's teacher.
