Hello from Swakopmund!

We have safely arrived in Swakopmund and are loving exploring a new part of Namibia. We took a shuttle from Windhoek this morning, driving about 4 hours through the Namibian countryside. A beautiful terrain, much more mountainous than we had expected and green with the recent rains. Upon arrival we immediately went down to the beach to shoot some b-roll and get a feel for the coast. It is absolutely beautiful here and we are excited to be spending tomorrow and part of Monday getting a feel for the coast. We are hopeful to get some interviews with locals tomorrow to hear their opinion on the food security situation in Namibia, and then Monday we head off with a guide company, Photo Ventures, to experience the sand dunes of the Namib Desert first hand. We are hopeful to get out to see Sossusvlei and Deadvlei, some of the most iconic scenes in the Namib Desert, but given the minor change of our itinerary (and our delayed arrival in Swakopmund by a day) our plans are still up in the air. Stay tuned for updates. Below are some shots of the beach that we took today.
