I've been to Myanmar in November/December and by now I've dealt with the 2500 pictures I took home. Here some of the capital Yangon (Rangoon) - will some themed pictures into themed posts the comming weeks. But for now: Show us... Windhoek:

Windhoek is the capital of Namibia. It only has almost 450.000 inhabitants and is not the most interesting city in Afrika. Here are some pictures. Lets start with some pictures of the Lutheran Christ Church:

Oh, I did not expect somebody else also been to Namibia - nice! Saw on your site also some pictures from Etosha and other wildlife I will share some of those as well.

Will also add some pictures of the museum, now with a statue in front.
And I think our bus stopped at about the same spot as your first picture, but there are slums between there and the city now.

In summer 2012, that museum was not yet even open...

The location where I took the cityscape is pretty much on what has been marked as "Aussichtspunkt Windhoek" in Google Maps, I confirmed this from the EXIF GPS data on another photo taken with a telephoto lens on the same spot:


α77 + Sony AF 4-5.6/70-400 G SSM @ 230 mm, f/7.1, 1/800 s, ISO 100

I believe that landmark hotel building on Independence Avenue does no longer go by the name Kalahari Sands these days. And the church tower belongs to the Christuskirche, which appears in the earlier photos in this thread.
