  • I was NOT there with Erick, but with our (white) guide, who also lives here and led us about 1 hour over the market with all side streets. The impression of driving through Katutura was also better than you would expect in a township. There are colourful stone houses, a street with 'pubs', a hospital and everything you would expect in a neighbourhood. The market not only offers goods to eat, but also has an alley with tailors, one with hairdressers, shoemakers and more. But it is always a contrast to Windhoek and also instructive.
