Good day....
Thanks for the votes on comments from yesterday's intro to the Namibian desert....another one snapped with my I pad....spotted this sign on the side of the road warning us about sand....to be expected I think.....thought it appropriately silly for Sunday....

I'd move on before they deliver the cement and water, that's a heck of a lot of mixing.
