Garwin Beukes - With the ever increasing population in Windhoek, one thing has become more and more accessible. Cars. As a result the dreadful queues in the capital become longer annually.
Just an example - on average I take 40 minutes to get to work in Windhoek's central business district (CBD) and another 40 back, a route which should only take 10 minutes.
Apart from the wait, what are the risks of driving this way?
Queues aren't all bad though. I've found that after a long hard day of work, driving home can help you blow off some steam. Especially when you love the car you drive. A long wait also builds up the desire to reach your destination. Studies have shown that this could be good for relationships and marriages as you long to see a partner even more.
The best part of it all for me is having the opportunity to listen to some soothing music or even turn up Chops as he entertains and informs us about what's going on in the world.
