Kolmanskop #14.jpg

Don’t forget to bath, at the end of a hot day digging diamonds in the desert….Here’s one more image from Kolmanskop.

Which gives me an opportunity to explain, as I was asked to in response to my previous post, that the Sperrgebiet in Namibia is a forbidden area: the road to Luderitz passes through it, but you may not stop your car or get out, as there are diamonds scattered just below and even on the surface.

Well, there were, until most of them were mined out, which is why Kolmanskop is now deserted – but still it is possible to find the odd stone, and they don’t want you doing that, now do they?
