Kalahari Desert and Seal Colony, Namibia

Hot and dry, the desert is merciless…

… so merciless that people try to escape it by any means. And by any means includes hot air balloons.

Just how many people have tried…

… in vain.

What they really need is one wise man to show them the way…

… one inspired man…

… one humble man, a modern time Moses…

… or P. Diddy…

… and they shall see the light.

Listen up and open your eyes. I am doing you a great service. Do you see this ?

Look carefully at the pictures.

Do not go to this (or a similar) place under any circumstances. These are the stinkiest creatures having ever lived. The world would actually be a fine place without seals. You cannot even imagine how bad they do smell and I cannot describe it very fortunately. Even the one in the last picture of which you probably think “He’s so cute, I want to hold it in my arms.” NO.

Fact 1 : we thought we were near a dumpster 500 meters away before we realized it was actually the seal colony that stinked so much. Fact 2 : Hungritch’s clothes still stinked 6h after we left the seal colony. Fact 3 : seals have been voted stinkier than Pepe le Pew in Animal magazine (ok, not so funny…but still). Fact 4 : if you go anywhere near a seal colony… (guess what ?) … you’ll stink. Fact 5 : we had to change a tire and got stuck there 90 minutes. Fact 6 : upon arriving in Swakopmund, people would not acknowledge us because we stinked seals.

So now that you have had a good look , you don’t really need to go near one of them in your entire life. You’re welcome.
