"NAMIBIA AFTER THE STORMS: 2011"
by Doug Dawson
After four months of recurring storms pounding their way across Namibia from the Atlantic Ocean, the weather finally cleared up about a week before Doug’s arrival on May 06, 2011. He had explored the country on six prior trips, but wondered how the Namib Desert would look after the wettest 4 months in recorded history. Over the next 20 days he traveled from the southern border up to Angola.
Namibia has many exotic succulents, from Mesembs in the south to caudiciforms and baobabs in the north. Route planning is critical – most highways are gravel and pass through riverbeds, and petrol stations are very sparse.
Show and Tell: Anything in flower or looking good. Namibian plants.
The in-person meeting is broadcast live from the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. More info: sfsucculent.org
