Tony and the Diamond Mine
The night after I took this photo, I had a very strange set of things happen. The diamond mines are still very active around here, and I ended up in a bar with a guy named Tony that was the manager of the mine here. He wore a very stylish hat. Me, Rene, and Curtis all ended up back in his suite where the party started to get super, well, unreliable. We ended up getting the hell out of there, but not before Tony gave us his hat as a sign of gratitude and sorrow.
Remind me to tell the full story some time!
Daily Photo – Doorways Through Time
Here in the abandoned diamond mining town called Lüderitz, I found a cool old house where every room was painted differently. The color choices all went so nicely together, and they seem to go even better as time ticks along. You can see some of the sand that has come in from the sand dunes below at the bottom. All the rooms to the left are almost completely full of sand, and that is blocking a lot of the sand from getting in here.
