Abandoned Truck

Driving through the Namibian desert was no picnic.  Alisha and I traveled on rough, gravel roads and didn’t see another vehicle pass us by for hours.  On our way back towards Windhoek, the woman assisting us with check-out suggested we stop by the town of Solitaire for some apple pie.

Solitaire is a good name for the town.  There is a gas station, bakery, hotel and car repair shop all on the property and not much else.  Near the road are a few abandoned cars which, I’m guessing, didn’t get to where they were going.
