Spine-tingling (Sossusvlei)

We started at ‘car’ (bottom right) and walked along the spine of the dunes you can see, follow the … more dunes, then turned right (not visible) to reach the summit. It took us 2 hours to summit and 30 mins to get back to the bottom. As we were descending we saw two figures walking where we just had, where it says ‘people’. We took these photos so you can see the scale.

The thing about sand dune deserts, is that there really is no top, as the perspective keeps shifting the higher you get, and new vistas are revealed as you so-called ‘summit’. This exposed the Difference between Ralph (Men?) and Lisa (Women?). I had no particular desire to get to the very pointiest peak of the dunes. Ralph, on the other hand…

…yet we get along famously…
