Photographer's Note

I have no idea what is this platform but it seems is a nice place for cormorants and seagulls.

Swakopmund is a city on the coast of western Namibia, 352 km west of the Namibian capital Windhoek. The town has 44,725 inhabitants. The city is situated in the Namib Desert and is the fourth largest population centre in Namibia.

Swakopmund is a beach resort and an example of German colonial architecture. It was founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa. As of the 1970s, German influences remained evident, including German street names, a German daily newspaper, and the German language being spoken by some residents. A 2008 New York Times article describes the town as having "the dislocating feel of a Baltic Sea resort set in the tropics."

I felt there like in our Sopot on the Baltic Sea. It was quite funny. But did I go to Africa to see Sopot?
