On the way from the airport to Windhoek you see these extraordinary signs at the side of the road (first three photos) - on the way back we were curious enough to call in - the souvenirs were pretty standard and we only bought a single car sticker - but we were encouraged to visit the taxidermy workshop and sales point, which was a surreal experience: many of the animals we've gone to great lengths to see in their natural habitats had been captured, frozen in position like 3D snapshots - in hyperperfect detail. It was spooky; we agreed that we wouldn't like to be locked in overnight... Would anyone like to buy half of a full-size elephant to stick on your wall?
