Built of moon, mist and rain: Mushrooms of the Zambezi

Mushrooms are magical because they appear and disappear in an instant, and toadstools are the residence of various elves and fairies. This magical “plant” acted as a wonderful substitute to my usual bird watching during a visit to Nambwa Tented Lodge in the Zambezi Region. Having seen very few of my favoured avian pastime goodies, most probably due to the ample amount of rain that fell in the region, the mushrooms replaced the birds (I will add some bird/mushroom recipes at the end of the article). As a result of the limited birding opportunities, my wife Helga had a field-day stopping me every five minutes to take pictures of all the beautiful flowers.

A Sweet Surprise Halfway between Nothing and Nowhere

There's a quirky little restaurant a couple of kilometres southwest of Rehoboth in Namibia's dry and dramatic Hardap region. Called Conny's, the establishment is a famous stop-over for many a tour bus or camper. It's a place to relax and recharge over lovely local cuisine made in the Baster-style of the area. Try to Google it, though, and you might not find much about the area. In fact, without the weathered sign next to the road one might miss it altogether.
