Grünau is a Namibian settlement, located on the side of the B1, Namibia main road, and just two hours away from the South African border. I drove there for petrol and coffee during my recent road trip but ended up staying a little bit longer. It’s a massive contrast when we think about the more touristic and postcard type of landscape that Namibia is famous for but it is nevertheless a real landscape, a real settlement with just a few people resisting the passage of time.
An abandoned train station, an abandoned school, a football pitch with nothing but stones and rusty goal posts and sand and wind, lots of wind.
