Along the Atlantic Coast of Namibia enormous sand dunes stretch for hundreds of miles inland. Mining of coal and other minerals provides a measure of prosperity, but almost half the population is still below the poverty level. We took a wonderful trip to the desert and had dinner there on the dunes. The next day we went on a small boat and saw many seals and pelicans. One of the seals jumped on board with us!
