the capital of Namibia | population: 160,000
"Namibia's Central Highlands are dominated
by its small, German-influenced capital, Windhoek. This isn't only
Namibia's geographical heart, it's also the country's road and rail crossroads,
as well as its commercial nerve center. Set among low hills at an
elevation of 1660m, the capital city enjoys dry, clean air, a healthy highland
climate, and an optimistic outlook that sets an example for all of Africa.
While Windhoek provides about as much action as Namibia has to offer, 'vibrant'
probably isn't the best word to describe its surprisingly staid and orderly
capital city." --Lonely Planet Namibia
