Since we were in Luderitz, we decided to have a look around. It’s not a big town, but there is a ‘scenic tour’ around the outskirts. Canadians may remember that when the Apollo astronauts were training to go to the moon, they were sent to Sudbury, Ontario, which was considered to be such a bleak landscape it was the closest thing to the moon. They should have gone to Luderitz. It really does have a lunar landscape. It also, oddly enough, has a golf course, closed when we were there, because of high winds
C'est une route, sur la carte. Pas facile a parcourir.
The map showed a road – not easy to manoeuvre
L'objectif de notre visite panoramique a été Diaz Point. Bartolomeu Dias était un explorateur portugais, qui a trouvé un moyen de naviguer autour de l'Afrique, au Cap de Bonne Espérance, mais il s’est également arrêté à Luderitz en 1488. Si le vent soufflait aussi fort que quand on etait là, je ne sais pas comment il pourrait avoir atterri.
The objective of our scenic tour was Diaz Point. Bartolomeu Dias was a Portuguese explorer, who found a way to sail around Africa, at the Cape of Good Hope, but also stopped at Luderitz in 1488. If the wind was blowing as hard as it was when we were there, I don’t know how he could have landed.
