Just a little rain

A river runs through it

We made a quick stop off at the Fish River Canyon after breakfast. The Fish River Canyon is second only to the Grand Canyon in length (160km) and depth (550m) width 27 km.

We hit the road again and it started to pour as we approached the town of Bethanie. By the time we got into town, the main street was completely flooded. The water was more than ankle deep. One of the local kids did a 'Slip and Slide' demo for us in the middle of the street (he ran and slid down the street on his belly). It was funny to watch. Thankfully, JB, our driver, parked the truck on a bit of a slope so we didn't have to step straight into the water (it was looking pretty gross).
