Namibian businesses

The various bars and business names along the road north to Ruacana are humorous and seem to reflect hope, pride and inspiring industriousness and entrepreneurial nature of their owners despite hardship. So much more positive than our society’s reliance on ‘entitlements’… Our stopping and taking photos was always welcomed with a friendly wave. Except once, a shout from the shade across the road. A cop, I hadn’t seen him. So I don’t take the photo. He waves us over, which we do. He is angry. Not sure why but I explain that when he shouted, I didn’t take the photo. He’s not convinced so I offer to show him my photos but he waves us off in disgust it seems. Odd but it is brutally hot out there at 39 degrees… Anyway, these signs made me smile and reflect the friendliness and humor of the Namibians we’ve met, albeit too briefly, along the way. Which is your favourite?!
