Namibia, Flamingo and Me

Namibia, Flamingo and Me

I spent one month in Namibia and moved slowly from one place to another. However, I did noticed one thing-There’s Loads of Flamingo by the Ocean everywhere! When I was little, I always though Flamingo can only stay in a lake or Lagoon. But the fact it, they can live by the sea even with Seal and other animal around! Below are my “love” stories with the beautiful Flamingos:P

I stayed at a place called Long Beach. It’s by the coast between Swakamond and Welvis Bay in Namibia. I was told that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had stayed at a place closeby when Angie was carrying her baby! It’s called Burning Shore.I didn’t stayed there, but I did have a very nice dinner(Kudu meat:P) over there.

I was there for 4 days and I tried to find out why Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt would picked this place to have a rest while carrying their first baby:P Then I found out WHY….The Flamingos……:P

Then the other day, I watched them again….and sea gulls….and I discovered they are eating Mussels!!! Well, I was wondering whether I could do the same! So, I picked up some mussel along the rocks…and eat them RAW!!!

Then on the third day, I moved to another area by the coast to watch the flamingos ..AGAIN:P
