In 1908, a railway worker walked on the road and found a golden stone. I didnt know what it was. I reported it to the German leader. It was a big diamond. The two were happy and broke. I wanted to keep this. The secrets are still leaked out, and the world's gold diggers are rushing.
The original desert wasteland, began to build residential areas, hospitals, schools, ice plants, offices, train stations, dance halls, and a bowling alley, as well as the first tram in Africa, the southern hemisphere The first X-ray machine is also operating here. A group of people who have turned this desert into one of Namibia and even one of the most prosperous towns in the world.
They have scoured about a ton of diamonds from this desert. They used to be able to pick up diamonds on the road, and they were slowly exhausted by humans. Then they moved to another part of Namibia near the coast. The gold rush, everything moved away, leaving only the house and the bathtub. After a hundred years, 40% of the houses were covered by sandstorms, and only the wind and dust of the house were left in the air.
According to legend, at the time of the gold rush, the Germans hired 500 locals to row in the ground, one inch of the hand to find diamonds, the scene is huge, and now, the yellow sand is still open Yellow flowers full of stories.
Namibia is named the International Dark Sky Reserve, which has the darkest night sky in the world. Very low population density, few tourists, almost no life at all, only a few species, rare, heat-resistant plants. Away from the city's light pollution, it is one of the best places to watch stars on the planet.
A few people have arrived here, but the photographer's lens is amazing.
You can see the most prosperous life on earth and the most amazing scenery here.
The sky at night is very amazing
