I believe that by now everyone has seen enough of Lesotho and I will finish the series this week. We started about 09:00 in South Africa, drove up the Sani pass and stayed for a couple of hours at the SaniTop Chalets (and Pub) for reasons of fortification. We then crossed over some of the higher parts of southern Africa, travelling from east to west through Lesotho. Many of the pictures show in what desolate parts of that country we were.
The weather ranged from sunshine, windy, rain, very cold and even a short snow storm where the snow was blown horisontaly against the car's windscreen. We could hear the snow hitting the windscreen.
This picture was taken after we started the descent. I took 5 pictures from this viewpoint and had to turn my back on the rain to dry the lens between shots. No raincoat - remember I don't think european :-) An umbrella wouldn't have lasted 10 seconds. When I was taking a picture I had to face a very strong cold wind blowing from the valley below. This picture shows only one drop on the lens, which is why I chose it for the blog :-)
Descending here is very fast via hairpins like those in the valley below. Every turn had evidence of mishaps like headlamp glass and miscelaneous small parts of vehicles on the road.
If you looked at all the pictures in the series, you will realise that the scenery is awesome. The weather helped with providing good pictures. The whole tour took roughly one day, with a wow-factor every half hour.
Yes, I have many more pictures and may show them one day. The Friday picture will be the exit picture of Lesotho - for now.
