13.04.2016 - SWAKOPMUND
The Skeleton Coast is promoted as a ghosty road along the oceanside. Many shipwrecks stranded here in the past. Some wooden onces. But the bigger fishermen's ships and oil tanker as well.
At lunchtime it was time for a little refreshment in the quite fresh sea. The sea is pretty rough here. A friend of some locals died in there turbolences by trying to reach the wrack. From here on we were heading for the last kilometers to Swakopmund. After sand and salt riding on the beach we definitively had to wash our bikes. I told the guys in Magic Car Wash what and how to wash. But I was really dissatisfied from their effort. So all again for them.
Later on we decided going to the Skeleton Beach Backpackers. A proper guesthouse providing clean and ordinary facilities and nice staffs. I was excited sleeping the entire night on a comfortable matress. But Martin and Alex from Germany arrived in the late hours. Alex has been driving with his 120€ Nissan Micra from the late 80's the East coast a few years ago. The car has been standing in Southafrica since then. They are using their tough vehicle now for vacations here.
