In Swakopmund, a small city on the Skeleton Coast of Namibia with a heavy German influence, I spent an hour or so in a library tucked in the back of a quiet courtyard reading an old “Marie Claire” magazine (a woman’s first-person account of visiting a shaman!) and otherwise perusing the titles–in English, Afrikaans and other languages–on the shelves. It was part of a slow, easy day that was much needed after many long days of travel and camping. The last photo is not a mistake–free condoms are offered in various public places in Namibia, including the library!
