I'm getting ready to depart Namibia and am anxious to get this post published. I've focused almost exclusively on the German colonization and really need to say more about the native populations such as the San people, often referred to as the Kalahari Bushmen. They and the clicking sounds they make when speaking were made famous through the movie "The Gods Must Be Crazy." Following are links on the San and on the "Gods Must Be Crazy."

I'm currently in Kigali and was surprised to learn that the German Colonial Administration in Tanganyika also extended to Rwanda and Burundi. See today's post on the Hutus and Tutsis for more information on this.
