This happens in Namibia ALL the time!

One unanticipated advantage of living in a thinly-populated country is that all the people who are here seem to know each other – I have met untold numbers of people I wouldn’t think possible to meet in the US. For example, in a recent post about Namibia’s novel approach to wildlife conservation, I brought attention to pioneer Garth Owen-Smith. Well, let me tell you another Namibian small world story…

Yesterday, even while I’m still editing my photos from the recent game count sponsored by IRDNC, the organization he founded (I promise to post them soon!), and having also just finished reading his 600+ page tome, The Arid Eden, I ran into him yesterday while visiting Cape Cross on the Atlantic coast. Yes, I felt like a groupie meeting my favorite rock star!
