Namibia

This was taken in 1999 in a desert in Namibia. In southern Africa it is possible to buy soft drinks in specially-made large-sized cans. I thought it was cool that they were called "africans". That is of course a play on such South African words as "afrikaans" and "afrikaner". The -can ending is pronounced with a long vowel sound (rhymes with "gone").
