That's a long narrow strip that runs north-south throughout the country more or less and then after the grasslands you've got the rolling dunes namib the maybe is considered the oldest desert on earth and those students in greta planes run all the way to the ocean about one hundred and fifty kilometers away. One of the really interesting things about namibia is the amounted landed put into conservation protection seventeen eighteen percent. I believe in parks and protected areas national parks and then another about twenty percents is under conservation management in the form of conservancies where they put aside big tracts of land for various tribal groups to manage themselves and live traditionally or however they choose and then there's private protected areas like the one we have been a number of other people are doing the same thing we're doing so in around two thousand seven mike partner.

Kind of way But very overgrazed so it was a desert farm at that point and once he bought it the cattle were removed. We weren't together at that point. So i didn't witnessed this myself.

Initially george miller said that he was planning on shooting a sequence in australia this summer in june because they wanted to take advantage of the higher tax incentives that they were offering and it was anticipated that they were going to be. Some legislation passed that would reduce the tax incentives next year. So i guess they wanted to get this big expensive sequence out of the way soon they had Had vehicles ready.

The Birthplace of Saint Augustine
"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one. After constantine's conversion did you see the air quotes there. i put around network. that's important. This was the christian era at the end of the roman empire of course alongside of christianity. Plato's philosophy and the schools that followed him ruled the roost. That's important. It was a time of doctrinal advance. Augusta lived right in between the nineteen creed three twenty five and the cow sedonia creed of 451 that's important. He also lived during the time of heresies. They were springing up all over the place. Will that too is important if you were to ask a young augusta playing in the streets of the gassed. What do you want to do when you grow up. He would answer with one word. I wanna be
How to Avoid Becoming a Meal for a Cheetah
"The cheetah is the rarest big cat in africa less than seven thousand adults remain on the planet think of it this way for every cheetah on the planet. There's more than four starbucks. Coffee shops the most important cheetah stronghold is in central namibia but the cheetahs. They're don't live within national parks. They live on privately. Owned farmland. Pharma's having huge problems with cheetahs losing a lot of stuck and there are other farmers who actually didn't have any problem at all ecologists you're melts heimer from the live knits institute for zoo and wildlife research in berlin assumed at first that all farmers had cheetah trouble. It was just that some were more likely to complain about it. But after tracking fifty collared cheetahs he began to suspect that there really was a pattern to their killing by the time his team had data from one hundred six cheetahs colored over the course of a decade. Not only was. He certain that cheetahs were more likely to kill in some places than others but that he could solve the problem. We indeed found. These communication hubs of cheetahs which spread evenly across the landscape with a high activity of cheetahs within the hubs cheetahs. Aren a social species but they still need to trade information. They don't meet physically typically not but they leave marks and prominent lent marks and whether they either use during fees to communicate with each other. Think of it as a coffee shop for cats where animals trade gossip even though these communication hubs only comprise around ten percent of the landscape cheetah. Spend most sometimes all of their time within them. These basically a long-term tradition which is passed on from cheetah generation to cheetah generation Some of these communication hubs basically no-no. Let's say the mocking location. Mocking trees were known by farmers. For sixty seventy years like the grandfather of current farmer already knew the mocking cheese in this area. What the farmers never realized is that only some farms overlap with the cheetahs communication hubs melts. Heimer thought that if those farmers relocated their most vulnerable herds. It could be a huge help. Here remembers the first farmer. He tried to convince and i told him. Look wilfred i have. I have the idea that they are actually there because of these mocking trees. And you happen to have your small shops accepting the same area. Let's try to move your herds out of this area and and keep them somewhere else and then let's measure the losses. And he was laughing at me said i can nice idea but i'm not sure whether it's going to work. They would probably follow the cast so we tried this. Actually it worked and he. He earned much money because he lost less cavs. After that thirty-five more farmers agreed to try it out in all the number of calves to cheat. Predation fell by a whopping eighty six percent. Of course some cattle outside of communication hubs were still lost. The cheetah's but it was at a low enough level that most farmers seem to tolerate it. What this means is that. Cheetahs aren't actively following the cattle. They simply take advantage of whatever food is available nearby. If it's not cattle then they go after. Wild ungulates springbok orix or coup. There are no so called problem. Cheetahs who intentionally seek out cattle instead there are problem areas. That's a much easier problem to solve. And it's one that doesn't result in farmers killing cheetahs melts. Heimer is now hard at work collecting tracking data from cheetahs in other parts of africa to see whether his findings hold up in other ecosystems so often it seems as if the goals of wildlife conservation are incompatible with the goals of commerce but this story reveals that infect biodiversity and agriculture can coexist allocates is really one of these nice example which can go hand in

So whenever you see things you have new eyes of men therefore the photography becomes much more meaningful so I guess. Travel is my main stimulus. Okay so and you are traveling all over the world. I have seen so many amazing images in your portfolio of people and landscape of different cultures and of of those people in their environment. So what is it that fascinates about those those people? Are there any answers you are trying to get you know to your photography when when photographing them? I've always had an interest in indigenous able those that have beaten in situ on the spot for a very long period of time I e the tribes of southwest Ethiopia and. I've just come back from a trip to Papua New Guinea. Where I went to the highland. Show it on. I guess it's the way they live. And the way they still connect to nature something that's been lost largely in our more developed world. It just fascinates me hobbies cultures. They're very similar in many ways and yet they're very different but the way they interact with the the earth sky above the elements and manage to look after the environment. And there's always been a little bit of the environmentalist in me jumper. I lived in West Africa for a year teaching and I live for four years in Ethiopia. So I'm particularly familiar with southern eighth yoga so I try to return there and take little voters there Once the air or once every eighteen months I real soft spot for Ethiopia in particular but also photographed different look different locations or all around to drive yesterday of an. I love together Namibia. I also love landscapes I mean. That's the other part of my geography really is just beings have more which so incredibly beautiful and Iceland or where I live here. My own country of Ireland is stunningly. Beautiful the perfect perfect place for tigers to capture light and landscape. Let's talk about landscape a little bit more later on on on the show here. Let's get back to people because it's really fascinating for me especially that travel to visit those different locations. Instead of one thing you would say that kind of stays the same when it comes to people standing in front of your camera like do you experience similar emotions or reactions when when photographing them. Actually actually no. I mean in in for example. I've only been to Papua New Guinea Than it's fresh in my mind the people are just loved. Having their photograph taken that were very receptive but some other parts of the world. I've traveled to Somaliland on travel to eastern Ethiopia. Where cultural differences make it a lot more difficult to take photographs a lot more challenging due to other religious belief or a certain shyness towards being photographed so sometimes sometimes you have to look not more I really think is important. Is Spending time with people not just going in taking your shot leaving. You have to know people you have to feel something on even those. That are difficult to photograph culturally. If you spend time with him you know you often get that little chance that maybe others don't get shots than becomes a possibility but this this first step of knowing those people better is is not a barrier which is also very difficult to cross. You have to kind of enter private sphere of someone or maybe a family. How do you start such process with people from different cultures different languages and so on while I always take a local guide? I always use local Enterprise people who know the people and that is my way it take find a good guide opens doors that otherwise you would find closed in your face some places. You just cannot go alone you wouldn't you wouldn't get up. She wants to get so someone who could translate to sit Iran with you and you can ask questions using their skills as an interpreter and that makes a lot of different so that first step becomes easier.
What's the First Nation with Totally Dark Skies?
"A US based nonprofit organization with the mission of preserving dark skies and cutting down on light pollution there are about one hundred thirty certified dark sky parks preserves and communities around the world from Death Valley National Park to the Namibian Nature Reserve in Namibia to the tone of Flagstaff Arizona.

Africa has been spared so far from coronavirus
"The Australian farmers may have receded but coronavirus has surged yet again just like we feared it might when we talked about the rise in global cases last week it's on all continents except Antarctica which hardly counts but still Africa is being only touched slightly but that he's with the world health experts fear the impacts could be the greatest if the virus does take hold because of the many health challenges already facing the continent Saudi organ solo helped establish a pan African infection prevention network after the ibotta outbreaks of twenty fourteen and fifteen and she's a professor of clinical microbiology at the university of lake house since a bola all the twenty nine Lavery trees across the country have the capability this last case we tested the two this was done at my university the it's been a lot of training in terms of collecting samples we've done that with a single patient we have a word presently monitoring the suspect and the contact over the station you mentioned V. po la not forgotten until I read your article the a bona had reached Nigeria nexus because you were able to handle it quite quickly which must be encouraging to you the fear of the boiler allowed us to do a lot of things in a way it also helped us to evaluate the structures we had in place which had not been tested but these structures are not evenly spread out across the country one of the reasons we were successful was because he came to legal state our legal state hi good public health infrastructure and so it was not difficult to scale all and at that time the other thing that happened was that we were able to come together so you had public sector private sector everybody works together all from different political parties with their parties aside the people in the U. epidemiologist posing with incumbent in the university is works together so there were a lot of feet on the ground and I was part of this response and it was I mean it was quite heavy for us to wake up in the morning you go to the emergency operations center which we have around the country's now and have all been activated because of this virus present we've had the NCDC that's the Nigeria centre for disease control has been empowered how does this work has been in the tracking of Lassa fever right now I agree to warranty is Lassa fever we having an epidemic of last a few which is more deadly than the coronavirus for us the death rates are worse and so when running actually at this present time working on Twitter that makes at the same time when I listen to the World Health Organization press conferences that comes across to me as one of that worries that it's the additional strain that may be put on Africans health services as opposed to the just the coronavirus the fact that there are other issues and the sort of the strength in depth of some services may be tested we will be tested definitely some countries for short like South Africa will be quite ready and have a lot more systems in place I'm some countries of war and I suspect some of the west African country is a work ID hit by a bullet this is how we can healthcare systems so they're less prepared we trained people from Ethiopia Namibia Malawi I think the G. five countries and we're going to go up on next week to train another twenty three countries so how ready every countries I can't tell you show a lot of countries are still young in the area of preparedness and notes are not as strong and as

"Is roofing everything you would do differently next for this person who talked about already. The interesting thing is that have been several times so I have been to. Toyota has been to the various parts of Namibia during various other trips the one part I could not go to was a skeleton coast and you could see the Skeleton Aladin coast from the hotter balloon of sorts. You could see it in the distance further north but it is for the rest. Actually oak associate is almost almost near the skeleton coast except that you have a couple of hundred kilometers of sand dunes in between John It but if you go a little further west It is at the end of the day. It's like any other massive national park. It depends on how much time you have. If I had more time at met disposal I would definitely like to Have Gone Back to the skeleton coast and spent a little bit of time there and seeing how that is and that's probably the biggest. I wish I had moment for me. Okay excellent excellent and one of our other two shows on maybe a does talk about the Skeleton Coast for those of you listening who want to hear more excellent. We're GONNA talk about the trip back here okay. On the way back we basically decided to drive Toobin who from this Ah Lodge but this Damron decided to take a slightly long route. The interesting the thing is if you're willing to take a little bit of a detour for an hour so you can actually stop by the tropic of Cape Recon sign. That's there it's a little north associates lay lodge from verb. You're leaving I. It was paper here. You're probably not going to be back here again. So when not stop by and take a look at what it's all about is interesting that you're in I forget. Sometimes how further North Africa is that. You're in certainly. We call Southern Africa which is usually Namibia. Botswana and South Africa. At least and you're in the tropics or you've just crossed over into the tropics doesn't seem right to me to think that makes it really. A weird is not the fact that you're in the tropics. It's also the fact that the sign is hard to find. Basically you're looking around for us and suddenly you see the sign in the middle of the desert surrounded by by a whole bunch of what you'd imagine. Sarah looks like right. I mean rocks and a little bit of Shrub. And what have you and there's to sign that's it and nothing else and design has been vandalized by people writing all sorts of stuff on it. It's something you could just drive and easily miss. That's that's what makes it all all the more surreal 'cause in all this fastness you're there and you you're like I'm in the tropics that seems wrong. You're right it doesn't look tropical from our usual definition. I've got you there and interestingly you know when we were there there. There was a group of Germans who decided that they were going to take off their shirts and basically act like it's the tropics saw. Aw Group of Germans who are basically in their tropical gear pretending that they're in the tropics taking a photo there which we found was interesting. Funny anything else you want to cover before we get to some of our wrap up questions a couple of things I mean one is as I said before. Please be prepared when it comes. Stew your food and up comes to the gas and drinks and so on. It is easy to underestimate. Just how massive and how fast this is this is truly the middle of nowhere and you allot get gas or food for so be prepared for the worst. That's one thing second thing is the maybe a does not have great food. This might come as a surprise given where you are and given the fact that it's a German colony but basically the the food you will get as game meat that's seasoned salt and pepper. If you're lucky go that's not going to be a whole lot of anything else so if you are a picky eater. You're you're out of luck and if you're a vegetarian you're definitely out of luck and and when you say the food you were doing camping so you were cooking or preparing in your own food so this is in when you're stopping and someplace like solitaire. There's a restaurant or win here and win Hook even Nestle Lot got decided to stop. Stop and can't help. But a lot of people take stay this Asli Lodge take day trips to see the dunes and comeback rather than try and hike them and climb them and so on so the advantage you have actually camping on the sides gives you the freedom to hike and have your own four wheel drive to go as you please but if you're going to see the things there's no reason you cannot stay at a lot and have good food. I mean what passes for good food and good bed every day. Little more plain plane than you might get some places. Okay good to know and sorry one other thing that I forgot one of my friends. He's creamed in the middle of the night when we were staying at the lodge and we came in to see what was going on and that was massive moth in his room. When we say Matt massive the mud probably had a bank span? Dan All a foot and a half that was in his room and he freaked out and of course the lady came in todd that he was being being a little kid and crab them off and tossed it outside. She didn't think it was a big deal. But if you're somebody who's scared of insects and bugs that's something to keep in mind that massive insects are not uncommon. Important safety tip there couple. Couple questions one is climbing with dunes. Would you talk about climbing large Dune. How much time does that take? Depending on how good a shape you're in you can probably climb ado. You are the half so the big daddy probably took us like an hour and a half climbing down. Obviously depending on whether or not to decide to Actually clamped down her slide down the wavy dead could take you anywhere from thirty minutes to another are and I'm seeing people climbing along the spine of of the dunes to get to the top usually from the pictures I've seen. Yes the thing to keep in mind. Is that for every three steps you take. You'll probably slight flight back a step or two. If you're going to climb from the sides what happen is that you'll slide down. Far More often climbing coming on the spine tends to reduce the amount of slide that you have to climb to the top good to know you're standing of prettiest spot in Libya that you saw this narrow it to this trip. Where're you standing on? What are you looking at without any doubt? The hot air balloon sure standing in the Arab alone looking at sunrise and the Skeleton Coast and the fog is clearing and you have the entirety off the nominee desert laying plot and open in front of you. You're seeing alone. Oryx walking by creating these tracks. You're seeing the desert while flour and it's unbelievably desolate beautiful thing. You'll lots anywhere else else. Excellent one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Namibia. We asked for red wine at the Sosa. sleigh lodge okay. We assume that the girl had understood what we had wanted. She brought back grape juice to us. She basically like gabby thought blindness from grapes right. This is here we go and relax. Sure why not. This is great. It's funny because you're not not all that far from Cape Town where you could find wonderful wines. In fact many trips we'll start in Cape Town and then go up into then maybe it so okay could could be the one waitress but no so if I have to say it all over again only maybe out would be that. If you ask for spiced students they will bring you salt and pepper right and only in that. Maybe is if you ask where the next gas station is. They will tell we about eight hours from here so excellent our guest again has been Kartik Ir and Kartik. Thank you you so much for coming on Emma travelers sharing with us your love for Namibia. Thank you very much Chris. It's been a pleasure and wonderful experience being part of the show In News the community. It's still my plan to launch a patriotic campaign to support amateur traveler here over the next a month or so so stay tuned in the facebook group facebook dot com slash amateur traveler or on the mailing list for more information about that. Also put it in the show as well but what kind of things you'll get. I have in mind that they'll be some episodes of amateur traveler that are probably topical that will not be available to the general population relation. And maybe you'll get amateur traveler sooner. Maybe you'll get I chance at amateur traveler trip. Those are the kind of things I have in mind so Let me know what you're thinking about about that. I had three new reviews amateur traveler. Welcome to three new listeners. A UBER goes to Europe. I love this podcast on my flight to Europe. Last summer I listened went to the podcast for the different countries. We're going to. It was so fun I also listen to them on the way home to see what I saw and compare great podcast. I'm hoping for an episode on the Circle Circle Tour around Lake Superior. I'm planning to do this in the summer. We have something that covers part of that. But I don't think all of that can't wait to go to provence. What's I'm planning to go to Provence for fall and I have read dozens of blogs and listened to many podcasts windies insights were very refreshing truly helpful? Tips truly specific helpful tips. Her enthusiasm and pace was lovely. Thanks Chris Appreciate the Guidance Your podcasts offer and then thirdly really interesting and useful podcast I have just started listening to this podcast.

"I think of that versus the more flexibility ability in the hours in some of the rest of Africa where physicals six made close at five so in many ways it works against you because a lot of people who are used to travelling in other parts of Africa. Come to Namibia. And then they sign up for for a tour zoom. The five o'clock tour will take off six o'clock. This show up at five. Thirty in the tour has left so so then once you get to solitaire. There is a place called system which is a canyon and that is the entrance to the NOC list national park. There's an actual paved road out here. But getting to the sand dunes entered. The park requires a to know how to drive in the sand. So we stayed at a lodge right next to the system Kenyan and called the Lodge approved so. This is a sleigh. Large basically is probably a kilometer from the Canyon so which meant that we we could make up in the morning. Go to the Kenyan getter permits and then dry straight into the actual substance late national park itself. So there's a daily Perma Mathiot is required. There is a daily permit that is required. It is eighty dollars per person and ten per car being one. US Taller is about fourteen. Them dollars okay. That's not bad at all. Okay so this is were get into the fun part when you get into the the actual successfully itself you'll see these massive incredible dunes of various sizes and shapes. The interesting thing is at these dunes are well over a thousand feet tall and they come in various shapes and sizes for example. You have a type of Dune. That's called a star which is not found anywhere else because of the fact that the bins are coming in from every direction. The Dune takes the form of starfish. which is very fascinating? And then you have other types of dunes that are basically or your typical Younes look exactly like what you imagine them to look like and you have goons named named after famous landmarks. For example there is doing forty five. It's odd five hundred sixty feet tall but very stunning visually. It's by the forty Fifth Mile Marker. That's why it's called in forty five. And then there's Dune seven which is different from the Dune seven in the Walvis Bay nearest. Here's popcorn which are will not here. Earlier years basically talked about having climbed a Dune. The interesting thing is that the sand here is over. Five million years old so this end is so old that it comes from a mix of the Kalahari desert and the sand Penn.. That's been there and it's got US air an orange that changes but the time of the day and I have not seen anything like it anywhere else in the world. It looks quite photogenic. Order Genyk from the pictures. I'm saying yeah. It is incredible so then we spent the day basically climbing a whole bunch of tunes which was a lot of fun because in many ways every new type of June that you climb it gives you a feeling for the landscape and how it can get but then what we decided it was to basically camp out on the night off that particular day because rather than drive all the way back to the law you can have campsites which are actually pretty sophisticated so you have indoor plumbing you have electricity outlets and you can set up your next to it so you have access to a lot of the modern amenities while you are getting getting set up for the night and for the next day. Did you need to decide that ahead of time. As you get the permit in the morning literally GonNa camp out in fact you should decide that way ahead of time. Hi because during the peak season it gets to be pretty busy so the campsites and the lodges tend to get full pretty easily so you should definitely plan and all of that at least a couple of months in advance and you see the peak season. We didn't talk about what time of year you went. The peak season is actually Iran inventor in the northern hemisphere atmosphere. So it's anywhere from Ron Tober November to March okay. And so you're in summer there. What are the temperatures there in spring essentially so the temperature is didn't get too warm through their around November or something like that it was around the member exactly take the temperatures didn't get too crazy during the evenings but during the day it certainly hits about ninety to ninety five degrees and much cooler in the evening evening I would expect incredibly cooler in the evenings and also as the Danes would say there is no such thing as bad weather only back clothing so please? He's come prepared with adequate layers. Just because it's a desert does not mean that it's going to be pleasant in the evenings right. No it beans quite the opposite. You'll have a larger change of temperature aperture in a desert climate. Yeah when you're there be decided to climb one of the biggest dunes called big daddy which is three hundred and twenty five meters or two thousand six to six feet and on the way there on my friends had decided to swap out one of the bags with a bag with his Tripod and the other bag had a several leaders of water that he left behind in the car so halfway through that climbed to one of the tallest dunes in the world in in the middle of the afternoon we realized that we were out of water or we basically had a half liter of water to share between three and of course we climb elevated the top the remake there and rather than take the hard way of basically hiking back down be decided well. We don't have a lot of time and we're really thirsty. So let's let's just try to slide down slide down on our bottoms down this really steep the side of the dunes and of course we start doing that accepts that it had rained for the first time in six or seven years in there and the desert pen itself had a little bit of water and so we slide down and research Land flat into this slushy uncomfortable. Will Sandy marshy thing for lack of a better term and then we hiked back to our car and of course we had cold beer here and water and oranges and there are these older German tourists who had been there who were waiting to go on. To have the shuttle's it'll take you to see the dunes not necessarily climbed them day see is hang out there trying to bite off these oranges Chubbier. We just look like hell occurred in all kinds of grime and they probably were thinking. What the hell are these guys up to from there? What we did the next day? Hey was we drove to. What's called deadly or death? Marsh to me. This is the most beautiful place that I've ever seen in the world. This is a gorgeous clay pan with dead trees that haven't rotten away because there is no humidity. These are hundreds of years old and their air skeletons of camel torn trees and they're sitting here in the middle of the Crack Desert Pan and walking around exploring these trees and looking looking at this is amazing and it gets really hot very quickly so what suggest is getting started on this as soon as possible bowl and taking in the views while you still can in the afternoons it gets prohibitively odd because you don't have any shades of the dunes because it's very open in which means that you're getting inundated by both the sun as well as a reflection from the clay pan onto you so it can get very unpleasant pleasant break Quickly we'll and we talked about wearing layers and clearly. You're bringing sunscreen. Are there other recommendations you would have for clothing a pat. I'm assuming the one thing I learned the hard way is that your neck will burn incredibly easily especially your neck in the back of your head. A half dozen quite career current so having some sort of toddler was the Arabs would wear something red basically covers up. That part is very very helpful. Second second thing is everybody tends to ignore their legs. I made the same mistake I wore. Shore had my upper body thoroughly covered and my legs were burned in ways that I had never imagined they could burn and I'm talking knees and ankles at casts. Your legs are right it next to the Salt Pan and you have all the time. That's affecting office. Trust me. Having burned legs makes it really hard to put thoughts on for a long long time. Yep One thing we didn't talk about is the name of the National Park and what it means. I don't know if this is something that you caught in your travels. I mean the name of the National Park has knuckled National Park. It is essentially considered the largest game park Africa. It's part of the knock lift mountain range engine. Obviously you have the novel dessert as well but I'm not entirely sure of the etymology Namib Means Open Space and therefore Namibia via the land of open spaces interesting. I just learned moments ago so I thought it would be interesting to people because I think that's very descriptive. Interestingly enough the lonely planet as at the Nama word number actually means fast dry plane which I assume is similar as open space so from there we actually went down to another marsh. That's called hidden. Lay The interesting thing and I don't think I talked about this before. Is that you have all these laced set. Our marshes that makes us lay and the region so sleigh is one of the Martians hidden lays hid marsh. Death Lay's death Martian marshon.

"Like to welcome the show. Carthage Ir who is currently from Boston but has come to talk to us about Namibia. Kartik welcome to the show. Thank you Chris. Good to be here there. You pitch me a region of Namibia. We haven't talked about in the two episodes that we have done on this South African country. Where are we going to talk about today? The region of Namibia that I am Kim to talk about today is a place called so so so so sleigh is essentially said a marshes. That's located in the southern part of the KNOB alip desert and it's basically a large salt and Klee Pan So it's nearer the Arab desert abbots into the Kalahari and it's one of the many of blaze which actually means marsh not valley along with deadly in hidden lay in the desert excellent. And why should someone go to the the media. That's a great question limit. BIA is one of the largest countries in the world which you might not realize if you just look at the map specifically when you really think about it brings to mind if you've ever seen the pictures of large massive orange tunes that are standing up Pecans Aski- Infinite Sea of sand dunes that are stretching out onto infancy with beautiful night sky. And what have you. That's exactly what's a sleigh. Is Interestingly enough. The area of this whole Soleil. South Penn is thirty two thousand square kilometers. So that's a giant sand sea and to say that it's isolated does not even begin to cover it excellent. I couldn't you enjoy this episode just for background for people my son used to edit this show when we did the very first show Namibia. He was the editor he was the editor while he was listen college and then a little bit afterwards and at the time he had said he was gonNA stop traveling with us. He'd seen enough cathedrals in Europe and wasn't interested in going places awesome. We did the first episode of Namibia. He edited it and send it along with a note that said well that Namibia sounds interesting and it was like who are you. And what have you done with my son. And and we've had that kind of reaction to this country on the show where we've had people who've gone for their honeymoons who have gone and loved it. It is well well up on my list so I'm excited about this. Where are we going to start before we get into all the sand dunes the other fun stuff? I do think that it's helpful to start the city of men who took the capital exactly. That actually includes a church. Your son narrow find interesting when you fly into maybe the first city that you fly into wind hoke it is a very small say but it is also very very cosmopolitan. I mean you. They have very high. End Gyms lots of great restaurants. And what have you and it feels very different from the rest of the country there couple of interesting places that I think everyone should visit the first one is the Independence Memorial Museum which was actually built by

"Is that you don't object to find people, and, you know, ten into turn them into a tourist attraction of themselves. So I'll tell you what, if you do me like that, then you can sort of contribute, something to the, you know, that some sort of cultural exchange that you can do something that makes it not attacking tourists experience. Yeah. It's, it's a very difficult. What really because I think nowadays, a lot of the villages, they can't always live in the traditional ways that they used to used to live. Because for whatever reason, you know, and, and we do live now in a money society is they need to go to hospital. They need money. You know, it's kind of thing. So how else do you add Mooney is that's one way of them and immediate. Tourism is a great way to do that. So, yeah, I think I think used a tourist of a big responsibility am to kind of objective. I people I think is a very difficult one. But yeah. Cultural exchange is Simpson. The I think is very important. And also, you know, if you're gonna take pitches, only like that, you know, make sure you ask people some people really didn't want pitches taken, but people take them anyway. And I think it is important, Josh, especially, especially for the women because I think often the agreements made between the tourists on the village by the man on the men are the ones being thirty to graph because they're often jest in normal clothes. So, so, yeah. I think it's really important to kinda build that recall and not take advantage of people as allies with your son, which will link to ensure nights, there's so much about Africa. What what's something else that you can leave us? We'd with regard to Namibia I think Namibia is kind of if you look him to really epic type of adventure Namibia is thought place. It's so different from everywhere else, I'm culturally. It's very different for other parts of Africa. And, and I think it's just one of those places when you can have about kind of, really wild experience, you know, like kind of I knew really can appreciate nature for old. And it does cause maybe how so many natural beauty points near the starry skies. Incredible co sand dunes evident to the sea, and great wildlife. It's just it's just a really different kind of experience from anywhere else that you're gonna visit in Africa. Thanks Helen and wilt nomads contribute us. Syra doff agrees, sir, I've always wanted to go to northern Namibia on my previous trips. I'd been to southern and central Namibia, and what's special about northern Namibia is its remoteness and the fact that it's one of the last places in Africa were wildlife is roaming free. So you find a rhinos and lions and elephants that are not constrained, within national parks, just roaming free in wild, which is something that's very special that was one of the reasons that I wanted to travel them also just because of the remoteness and the rallies landscapes of dumber land, which is the area was in animals roaming free than not inside most places where you see unimposing Africa Dale on inside national PA one of the big reasons that people travel up his to see desert elephants to see these free. Roaming desert everyone's which can be very difficult to track because they cover such large areas. But we were pretty lucky. We managed to see them pretty much every day of entre rapid, so on what a doc owners, elephants ends. They live a hard life, those particular the desert elephants, don't they? Yeah. It's very harsh existence. It's a it's a harsh environment. It's very hot. It's very dry. And they've adapted to two surviving full. I think it's up to three days without water, and they have to work very long distances to find. So it's really sort of in existence will living on the edge of existence because they can't they did not like other animals, like say an Rx that can get would to from standing on June's inches picking up the mystrom. See elephants do need water. And so it's a it's a harsh existence for them to be went full driving, which is what we call it in stride..

"It's beyond all common sense. It really is goofy. And again, our own your government says in in their report, they do every year, the scientists for the State Department others that this is a danger due to Americans not to people in. In Namibia or somewhere. They say this is a big danger to Americans warmer temperatures warmer climate. But it just doesn't make any sense we have people moving to the south. They're moving out of New York and New Jersey, Illinois and California and going down to states where there aren't any taxes. But don't they know that warm climates are dangerous. I've spent some time recently in Naples, Florida, and the weather's been great. And I kind of enjoyed people want to move there. And if we do all the things that AO see wants us to do and corn, Cory Booker, Kamala. Harris, Elizabeth what we do all the things that tell us. They did. I just ran over. Or the India is India, China and Russia gonna follow our suit. Hell no, hell, no. Yeah. It really makes. It makes no difference of people doing in Ohio and probably in the United States. There are more than fifteen hundred coal fire power plants in planning or in construction around the world. Cities all over the world, Indonesia, Vietnam. Japan is building forty coal fire. Power plants. Germany is building a couple of new ones Turkey all over the place. And and so what we do here in the US, even if you believe in the theory manmade warming, which is very shaky. Our emissions are going to have almost no effect on what's going on around the world every chance they get. The news media tells us that was the hottest year on record twenty eight team was the hottest run track for twenty nineteen. I don't trust those making the measurements. I've seen studies on those who call in and say what the temperature is and like forty eight places all over the country. I don't trust them because those doing the measurement are liberal progressives who wanted to find out come. They're not looking for objectivity. They want a certain result. And so even assuming if temperatures go up one or two degrees. What difference does it make deal with number one renewable energy? They wanna get rid of the large. Interest industry in America is the oil gas coal and also throw in the renewables throw in hydro-electric throw win win throw in biomass. Solar geothermal throw all that together. But what the liberals are saying now is for the Sonoko Zain, the Exxon's in the shells to be taken over completely in fact eliminated. Get rid of all the coal companies. Get rid of all the natural gas, which burns clean. If you got rid of that, you're looking at five million jobs at minimum that are high paying jobs. Also, get rid of the internal combustion engine. That means Ford GM Chrysler and all the rest, the BMW plan going up in South Carolina. The Toyota plant in Kentucky, get rid of all those plants. What happens to the eight to ten million union workers who work in those plants the UAW came out a few days ago and said now, wait a minute. We can't be serious serious about this. But I think we have to take it seriously. Because at some point Trump's not going to be in office, you're going to have liberals in charge of the presidency. The house. You're going to have complete control by the liberals. We gotta take it serious and argue against it. Steve Gorman what happens to our economy, if the number one industry in this country is energy and the government obliterates all these companies, and we go strictly geothermal and solar and biomass and win hydro-electric. What happens to those eight million jobs? What happens to the five million auto workers? What happens to those middle class? What happens to those entire industries? Well, that's right. If we force a transition from low-cost energy to higher cost energy that'll affect every industry, not only the energy industry, but it'll affect every industry that relies on energy, which is just about everybody. And what you do is. You will hurt the productivity of those groups economic growth comes from productivity growth, and you do that in the most productive way the most efficient way. So switch to a force to switch to renewables, which are less. Efficient more expensive is going to hurt the economy. There's no doubt about it. And that's gonna quit contract. The number of jobs. No doubt about that. At all. By the way, our energy industry is just a stopping the world right now. Last year, we became the the biggest producer of crude oil in the world about seven years ago. We became the biggest producer of natural gas in the world. We're exporting hydrocarbons like propane gas to Asia. Prime minister Modi of India says he wants to get a propane canister at every household. They have may have people over there that are burning wood and dung and charcoal in their houses and their huts, and he wants to get a gas canister it everybody. So our industry is making the lives better. For people across the world by shipping them modern fuels to us, and we cannot ship them wind and solar and Thermo. We can't ship them. That destroys the industry. Another reading from the green new deal upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximum energy efficiency. We know the lot of buildings in the US needed to be upgraded. This was certainly freight millions of new jobs upgrading billions buildings. So what they wanna do is destroy take on every building or take every building in the country. There might be as many as forty million structures and to say they're non compliant with the new green deal, therefore. To either eliminate them haul them off destroy them. Or to upgrade them. Does that make any sense to you know, it's you know, it's again a force program. I mean, people if people have insulation problems usually upgrade their place, but forcing every building to change this is this is probably tens of trillions of dollars. It's a very very big number. And you know, these they have they have tried these programs in other places in California in Chicago, and others were they create incentives for people, and they try and get them to put in better insulation all the rest associated what they find out those people really interested unless there's a real big Rubik dollar thing or they're forced to do it. So again, a big part of the green deal is is is forcing people to do stuff forcing them to change their cars, forcing them to upgrade their building. You can't have a a green new. Deal without coercion. It just it's just not gonna happen from from what people wanna do. It's gotta be something. That's forced by big government. Steve Gorn what about transportation, quote, overhauling all transportation systems in the US to eliminate pollution in crane house gas emissions from the private energy sector, private transportation sector. And that means we're going to go to high speed rail. I knew some in California do with the high speed rail. And so. Get rid of all airplanes. Well, we're trying to build a high-speed rail from Los Angeles to San Francisco originally, I think the for forty three billion dollars at ballooned over eighty billion and that's after like seven or eight years of work. They really couldn't get anything done. And they've now pulled the new governor's pulled the plug on that. But you know, we are we have such great commercial air system in this country. You can get anywhere within two or three or four hours. It's a relatively inexpensive. The time has passed for for rail for at least for for passenger unless you want to just go on a a nice tour along along the mountain ridge or something we have great aircraft systems trying to put it in high speed rail would be more expensive and wouldn't save you time in where you're trying to get to. So again, the basis for that California's system in many ways was to get people off of planes. Get people out of cars, try and put them on trains to reduce green. House gas emissions. It's all part of this this ideology that we have to do these kinds of things to save the planet. How about this cows and climate change the green new deal, quote, working collaboratively with farmers and ranchers in the US to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions Carnegie, cultural section and sector. So that means they want to capture the methane that comes out of the anus of farm animals is do we but technology available. That would catch Cal farts found sometimes present present I put up a slide from Argentina. They put this this big bag on the cows back. They walk around with these things on and it captures things about I don't know if that's real practical. But yeah, agriculture's right on the list behind the energy companies a big target for the climate movement. And if if this goes a step too, far, there's gonna be a lot of a lot of forced restrictions on cattle, and hogs and and everything else. The agriculture industry. Again, these these things it's not clear that all of these measures are going to have the slightest effect on global temperatures because temperatures the evidence shows are dominated by natural factors. The weather the oceans driven by the sun manmade influences are small so all this stuff is is great. But it's not clear, and no politician will tell you this is what's going to happen. A global temperatures that we put in the green new deal because there's no evidence, and they haven't the foggiest whether it's going to do what would it do to the fast food industry without McDonald's Burger King get rid of Wendy's get rid of every chicken joint Chick-fil-A all out of business. Chickens are terrible. They say Americans really two hundred twenty two pounds of meat and poultry and twenty nineteen fifty three pounds of which will be beef. This must be stopped. And so what if government issues in order that all fast food businesses from Chick-fil-A to McDonald's, Wendy's is out of business? What does that mean? Yeah. Pretty amazing. You know, and and the the the. The latest thing is let's come up with meat that isn't meat or come up with almond milk. And then they're gonna call that natural. Somehow this stuff tastes like made. It looks like meat, but it isn't meat, but it's natural. Soiling green? Green green. Absolutely last me. They want a guarantee jobs guaranteeing job to every person living in then say citizen every person living in America without a good family and medical leave paid vacations. Retirement security to all people in the US does as citizens. So this is going to guarantee a living calculated wage, which family medical leave. You're going to have a mental leave. You're going to have vacations at least four weeks vacation fully paid retirement and a guaranteed job for those who don't want to work. And if you don't want to work on a give pay you anyway, what would that do again, the young people? I'm not sure they're familiar with the history, but the twentieth century was the repudiation of socialism. We had a so many examples around the world Nikita Khrushchev of the Soviet Union said we will bury you he had all this five year plans and that group collapsed in about nineteen ninety. We had the Chinese that were pretty much straight communist, and then they had famines in nineteen fifty eight to sixty one thirty one million people died, and they loosen up went to a more more market-driven system. Although they still have the political side that that isn't isn't real effective as we think. But if you go all around the world in the twentieth century, the disasters were government plan to Connie's and free market economy triumphed again, and again, and again, yet what they're teaching in schools nowadays is that there's problems with capitalism, which turned to socialism, and they just ignore the history of what people have tried to run the new book. Have you have out as outside the green box rethinking, sustainable, development and? Steve Gorn, we have to take this seriously because the kids are being taught this in school, and they think controlling Cal farts is something that can occur that will fundamentally changed the economy for the better. And in reality, it would crash our economy make us look like Venezuela or Haiti and we don't need that. Steve. You're a great American and thanks for coming on the Bill Cunningham friend will do all right. God bless America. Let's continue with more. Wow. Bill cunningham. The great American live with you.

So is your sense that people are coming from elsewhere in the city to to use drugs and supervised setting that happens to be in your neighborhood? Yes. I'm hearing that there. There are people that are coming from other parts of the city. I'm also hearing that there's a greater amount of drug dealers that are coming to this neighbor as a result of finding a client much easier because they have injection sites fairly close. Presumably people in the community will continue to use drugs. So what happens to them if there aren't more supervised injection sites is the safety issue likely to go down if more of those sites aren't opened? Well, we have four of them, so I believe our neighborhood is doing their share, but is the community likely to be safer if more sites aren't opened? We need harm reduction strategies. Otherwise, it would have a greater impact. Absolutely. Putting all the treatment sites in one neighborhood is wrong, and it's a disservice to the people were trying to help if people are going to inject drugs anyway, and those other sites are busy. Where do you think they'll end up using those trucks? What one of the difficulties were having with the current sites is that, you know, this is a twenty four, seven issue. They operate, you know, business hours and you know, we need to start looking at if there is a concentration better coordinating times and schedules.
