Grünau.

Documentary, travel

Note: This blog is written in English but my native language is Portuguese.  Sorry if you find typos, funny phrase constructions or odd sentences. And by the way, thanks for reading it!

 

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.
